  • Boeing revealed a video of its successful Starliner parachute test

SpaceX says it has performed five successful parachute tests similar to the "chutes-out" test that resulted in less-than-ideal results. Due to this, the US military could, in fact, stop the launch if SpaceX will still encounter problems during its test flights, the report said. "The parachutes did not work as designed".

Assuming nothing unexpected happens, Boeing is now scheduled to conduct its first uncrewed Orbital Flight Test in August, followed by a crewed flight test that is expected to happen by the end of the year. Boeing, with seemingly endless resources at its disposal, has yet to actually launch its Starliner spacecraft, but a recent hearing of a House subcommittee revealed that a SpaceX misstep may have opened the door for Boeing to step in and win the race to crewed missions into space.

The partnership between NASA and SpaceX seems to be in jeopardy since the US military is keeping a close eye on the space agencies' activities.

On Wednesday, NASA affirmed that SpaceX had an issue amid a trial of its Crew Dragon parachute framework in April.

Under normal operation conditions, a series of four parachutes would deploy simultaneously, easing the descent and bringing the capsule (or in this case a large metal "sled" used for testing) to a comfortable touchdown. The test was meant to examine what would happen if that problem were to arise during a real flight. Brooks asked, evidently pressing Gerstenmaier to claim publicly that the test automobile suspended by the parachute became once damaged or destroyed.

Boeing has shared new video clips of parachute tests related to its Starliner spacecraft, providing the public with a behind-the-scenes look at these various sessions. Since both companies had similar issues, there may be something wrong with the setup of the test or the way parachutes are being packed. "This is part of the learning process", he said.

SpaceX echoed that perspective in a statement. "Data collected from this test provides industry leading insight, informs future testing, and allows us to develop an even safer system", the company told Business Insider.

The thrusters were meant to bring the Crew Dragon away from danger should the SpaceX rocket (either the Falcon 9 or the Starship) encounters a fatal malfunction.

NASA and SpaceX are participating in a joint and ongoing investigation. Furthermore, Grestenmaier stated in the conversation, "We didn't get the outcomes we needed".
