Ballistic Recovery Systems

I actually did a science project on this. A parachute big enough fitted to a commercial plane that would stop it’s decent in an emergency, would completely make the aircraft unusable, and sometimes, unable to get off the ground. Cloth is heavy

I’m sure one day they’ll create a material that’s ultra light. Some bullet proof vests are made of spider web silk #themoreyouknow
