Re: Isn’t the air density and gravity different

Air density on Mars will be quite variable I'd expect, depending upon location.

Perhaps they should use Apollo era parachutes, they all folded into an impossibly tight space yet never failed and they didn't have long to test them.

Part of that 'missing tech'. I suppose, so careless.
