Parachutes destabilized space-X simulated lander in ordeal (Video)

The simulated spacecraft became unstable and was lowered earlier during the parachute test for the company's new manned spacecraft, Reuters reported.
No injuries in the accident. The capsule, released by a helicopter, shook hard, but the parachutes opened and it descended to the ground.

Elon Musk's private SpaceX company is doing trials for the manned Dragon spacecraft. Simultaneously with it, a manned capsule for NASA is also developing the company “Boeing” - “Starliner”. Both companies had failed trials and were behind schedule despite exceeding budgets.
