How to use parachute in a sentence?

  1. Astronaut Scott Kelly:

    I'm looking down at the Earth right now and it's 250 miles below me, and only a small portion of that is the atmosphere, and when that Soyuz hits that atmosphere going 17,500 miles an hour, a lot of things have to happen just right to make sure we touch down and parachute safely. So when you look at that big space between us and the speed involved, it's pretty serious. And it's something that you definitely think about and consider. But it's my second time flying the Soyuz, my fourth time flying in space. It's something I signed up to do, and we'll be ready for it next Tuesday.

  2. Justin Chapman:

  3. Whitfield Growdon:

    We don't have data that a parachute will save you when you jump out of an airplane.

  4. Greg Lund:

    It’s low. There’s not a lot of time for anything other than to get a parachute out and to land.

  5. William Stafford:

    I have woven a parachute out of everything broken.
