Friday, in turn, created a peak load force of around 70,000 pounds. Therefore, the ASPIRE set a world record.
NASA launched a 58-foot Black Brant IX sounding rocket to Mach 1.8 to fully test the chute, which will play an integral part in landing the state-of-the-art Mars 2020rover on the planet in February 2021.
The parachute is made from nylon, technora and Kevlar fibers which will allow it to hold heavier loads and survive when falling through the atmosphere.

According to him, the ASPIRE test in detail, showed how our parachute will behave when disclosure in a supersonic flow high above the surface of Mars. "And let me tell you, it looks handsome", said McNamee.
The 67,000-pound (37,000-kilogram) load was the highest ever survived by a supersonic parachute. NASA hopes that it can be used to slow down a spacecraft carrying the Mars 2020 rover so that the vehicle can slow in the upper atmosphere.
