|Comment||No offense but i was very disappointed with the answer.The expert just told me why a parachute would be deployed and the chute met enough resistance to save fuel.As a skeptic i need to know how 1/2 to 1% of the earths atmospheric pressure could even open a chute. In the event it did though it would not provide any resistance due to the air being too thin. It would be be like when the astronaut dropped the rock and feather simultaneously on the moon to prove Newtons theory that all sizes of objects are pulled equally by gravity and the only factor in descent speed would be variables like air resistance. A chute will not open in the vacuum of space and it will not slow down anything in air 200 times thinner than earths, there's just nothing there to resist the chute and slow its descent. I smell a rat NASA! If you wish to gain any of your lost credibility back,start by not doctoring most of your rover pics.quit blurring out, altering,and covering up everything interesting you find.|
