The aeroshell team, lead by Mason Mckovich, is hard at work analyzing various factors that impact the stability and speed of the car. They are currently focused on validating the parachute's computational fluid dynamic analysis; this includes confirming the MatLab code, designed to calculate the values of drag on the parachute, and verifying there is sufficient airflow to allow the parachute to decelerate the car once deployed. Pictured below is the parachute.
