NARRATOR: SpaceX engineers prepared the 12,000 pound Dragon test article to be lifted 8,000 feet from Morro Bay, California and flown out over the Pacific Ocean. SpaceX employees worked around-the-clock on the days leading up to the company's parachute test. Heavy wind, dense fog and high seas along the coast of California didn't deter their enthusiasm as they prepared to test the parachute system that could safely splash down NASA's astronaut crew following an in-flight anomaly.
