SpaceX Achieves Key Milestone

SpaceX has been conducting safety tests of its Crew Dragon, a capsule that will eventually send humans into space.

A video posted online over the weekend shows a stand-in capsule getting dropped from an airplane and landing on the ground with only three of its four main parachutes working.

SpaceX tweeted: “Most recent test demonstrated the parachute system’s ability to land the spacecraft safely in the unlikely event that one of the four main parachutes fails.”
