  1. WHY WAS THE VIDEO NOT SHOWN?? A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS, AND IS THE “BEST EVIDENCE”‘…..

  2. As we grow old, our parts start too show signs of wear, be we humans or machine.
    That an Unused parachute breaks down, comes as no surprise, in fact, I ‘m surprised the parachute was the only thing too break, Consider, the crew rarely deploy the O2 mask, or the evacuation slide, wonder what’s going to happen if they fail when needed, Maybe it’s time to refit all the safety equipment every one of two years.

  3. I noticed that during the test it was “spun” as a success because it could land with only two. Interesting I think I saw all 3 drogue chutes deploy ( they never showed any other views after the test ) and then there was no third chute ? Who knew that para-
    chutes would be a problem.
    The other thing I noticed was that when the stage below the capsule crashed nearby that it seemed to release a really huge cloud
    of the orangish propellant ( can’t think of the name this second ) that is highly toxic. In a real event that might land in the ocean releasing toxic fumes that might be health for the recovery team or the crew inside the capsule. I think they “planned” for it to burn – but didn’t. That can’t be healthy ? I doubt anyone will care about my observations because according to the NASA con-
    tract Boeing gets more money for fewer flights than SpaceX anyway.
