The road to Mars is getting hotter and hotter over the years. The only possible way, for now, in order to loose the enormous amount of kinetic energy and to land safely on the surface or the red planet is to use a parachute. Well, they are making the use of a set of thrusters but this is just before the final step. The problem is that the spacecrafts are constantly getting larger and heavier and the parachute should follow this trend as well. And by getting larger the common testing techniques are getting obsolete! So, NASA figure out a new testing method! To find out more… watch the video!
