👇This photo shows #Shenzhou14 return capsule was dragged by the main chute for ~5mWondering if CMSA would say anything about why it was not cut.Possible cause:❓Malfunction of the cutting system❓Astronauts decided not to cut❓Astronauts forgot to initiate the command
It should be noted that the wind speed was very low at the time of landing.📷(c) Weibo@张敬宜Tea-tia
As taikonaut Chen Dong said, “we were returning to earth like the shooting star.”The shining spot at the front is the return capsule and the burning trail is the propulsion module. People in China captured the moment when the #Shenzhou14’s return capsule flew across the sky.
