Armadillo Aerospace, Ben Brockert
He had a sixteen minute video. He showed some explosions and explained what went wrong. One of the flights went 42km! The first parachute was blown apart and didn’t slow the rocket enough and the second parachute also didn’t work. Their window tunnel is driving a pickup at sixty miles an hour. Next launch went to 95km. They are launching rockets at White Sands in Texas, which is near where the site where the government tracks satellites. For this way the first parachute was yanked completely off.
