SpaceX offers a deeper insight into some of the Crew Dragon crew's parachute system tests, with a new video compiling frames from a number of tests, including those carried by a cargo plane and a high balloon. The video shows a test version of their Dragon Crew Cap, dropping across the skies above the desert test ground, and the deployment of a multi-parachute grid that will use it to navigate back to Earth after planned missions that astronauts transmit to space.
The privately-owned Musk has been exploring the Crew Dragon parachute system for a while, and we still do not know much about its progress, except in April to make the "advanced development test" using metal sleds in place of a real demonstration team a capsule that does not meet NASA's expectations. Nevertheless, the test was perceived as "good" by both parties due to the data it provided to work ultimately as a successful system. SpaceX shows frames of seven different tests in the main video they share today that include both reliability tests and qualification tests.
He is yet to announce that his parachute system is approved for flight, and this is a milestone that Boeing has achieved as a rival to Starliner's crew in June.
In addition to the parachute system, SpaceX takes a wide range of tests to improve the quality of the NASA crew on board. The company also recently made detailed progress in investigating the cause of the failed engine test to break the Dragon in April and the steps it has to take to solve the problem so that it can move forward by launching a test with crew. was targeted at the date of 201
