Well, the foil parachutes are what caused the radar to go all wacky. They're about 18"
around and, when the ejection charge went off to eject the main chute, 200 little foil chutes deployed and scattered over about 300' or so.

We needed weights to give the chutes something to drag, so we opted for glowsticks because it was night and, well, we wanted to see the chutes.

Trunkmonkey is here! There is no cone...
