The Weather Balloon Project - Parachute Trial 1

The following video is an example of what happens when one doesn't do the proper research before trying to make something.

 As stated in the video I tried to make the parachute for the weather balloon's recovery system. The failure was due:
  1. I used the wrong fabric.
  2. Not enough guide strings were use.
So next time we will try to make this better!


  1. Hehe, nice video. Guess you should learn from your mistakes and have a second go. Wish you luck!

  2. Mythbusters taught me that it goes:

    Research > Small Scale Testing > Final Thing

    Still that video did make me chuckle.

    1. Truth Roger! I'll take that into account into my next tests!
