  1. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](http://www.astronomy.com/news/2019/08/exomars-fails-another-parachute-test-threatening-2020-mission) reduced by 82%. (I’m a bot)

    > Each lander has a different size, shape, or landing procedure that changes the demands on the parachute, so they can't just copy from past working designs – though NASA's Mars 2020 rover is built from spare Curiosity parts and will in fact be a more or less duplicate mission in terms of its landing procedures.

    > Scientists are planning a workshop for September to continue brainstorming improvements to the parachute system, including engineers from NASA who have worked on previous Mars parachute systems.

    > There's another high-altitude test for the main chute planned for later in 2019, and engineers hope to certify the full system in early 2020.
