Re: Isn’t the air density and gravity different
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.
Maybe pride has something to do with it? It is an EU and Roscosmos project. They'd probably hate to have the US credit for the chutes. The other thing is Roscosmos does have quite a bit of experience using chutes.
