Parachute 2.0

I wanted to make my new parachute this weekend for the 10^6 weather balloon project, but I instead came down with a cold. 124 tissues, 10 Tylenol pills, and 2 trips to Walmart later, I have the parachute almost done. This one measures 6ft x 6ft, and should support a weight for ~10 pounds.

We'll see if that's accurate though. You may have noticed that the parachute has a square shape to it as well. This is because I was too lazy to sew a circular one, and a square parachute should work just fine. Look for a testing/how to video in the next few days!
