Copenhagen Suborbitals Parachute Testing

Great to see so much effort being put into this part of the architecture required for a manned flight.

The Nexø II rocket will also be launching soon, check out the team’s website for more info or keep checking back here!

Video Caption: On June 2nd we performed two tests:

1: World’s first manned test of a ballute which is basically an inflatable parachute. This was to test the ballute before flying with the Nexø II rocket later this summer.

2: World’s first skydive below a 2 stage reefed cluster of 3 parachutes. This was another step towards the parachute system that will bring the space capsule to a soft landing
