NASA has quietly released photos and video of a 31 July parachute test for its future Orion astronaut capsule that didn’t go so well: the mockup capsule hit the ground pretty hard. Unsurprisingly, some have jumped on this, claiming that NASA is trying to cover up a failure.

The full story is a bit more complicated than that.

Full Story.

Yeah
Everyone knows that the best way to cover up a failure is to release pictures of it.

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

It worked for me.  I don’t believe for one measly second that this test failed and crashed.  The mountains in the background prove this.

Only tacky 80s clubs have no atmosphere, Accipiter.

My entire point was that Earth has gravity.  Gravity pulls down on everything sticking up from the Earth, and therefore mountains cannot exist here.  If there were a mountain it would quickly be flattened into the surrounding plain.  It’s simple physics.

Was it really human error?
