Crew Dragon lands safely, despite one parachute inflating slowly

(09 Nov 2021) "The spacecraft's return to Earth seemed nominal up until four minutes before splashdown, when the vehicle's main parachutes deployed. Three of the four parachutes came out nominally, but inflation of the fourth parachute was delayed by a fraction of a minute. Despite this, the commentators on the NASA-SpaceX livestream indicated that the fourth parachute's inflation rate was normal, and the spacecraft's descent speed nominal." (Ars Technica)
