|This shows the challenge rocket
with the nylon parachute inside the 'nose separates at
apogee' nose cone.
In this case,
the drogue is only tied to the nose cone.
The main chute is fastened to the rocket with
a bottle top - see the 'nose separates at apogee'
nose cone page for details.
This particular nose cone is tapered.

the nose cone.
