Orion Parachute Drop Test

JSC2012-E-103026 (16 July 2012) -- The Orion team loads a test version of the spacecraft into a C-17 in preparation for a parachute drop test at the U.S. Army Yuma Proving Ground in Arizona. The main objective of the latest drop test is to determine how the entire system would respond if one of the three main parachutes inflated too quickly. Photo credit: NASA
