ESA’s Mars mission hits snag after second parachute test failure

ESA’s Mars mission hits snag after second parachute test failure Sending a spacecraft to Mars is no easy feat, but landing it on the Red Planet without making a crater is equally challenging. The European Space Agency knows that all too well, and a recent parachute test has raised serious questions about whether the ExoMars 2020 mission will remain on schedule. A previous test in late May showed promise but was ultimately deemed a failure due to damage sustained by the two large parachutes that will be doing the majority of the work. This latest test included an updated design of the parachute arrangement but the problem reared its head once again.

But if Democratic leaders in Wisconsin were upset about a neighboring state getting all that business, most weren't showing it.

"People eat, drink, celebrate and build the economy not when they’re asleep, but when they’re awake," Ben Wikler, chairman of the Democratic party of Wisconsin, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "And DNC delegates will spend every possible waking moment in Wisconsin."

Madison, the Wisconsin capital, is about 10 miles closer to Milwaukee than Chicago is, but no state delegations will be staying there, according to the paper. The city's mayor was unfazed.

"Though we’re not on the list to host any state delegations, we’ve actually got a lot of interest in room blocks for other folks," Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway told the Journal Sentinel. "You know, we’re just looking forward to helping Milwaukee make this convention as much of a success as possible."

Republicans, however, were quick to jab at Democrats over the accommodations for the convention.

"Dems can't even go all in on Wisconsin!" tweeted Pat Garrett, a former spokesman for the Republican Party of Wisconsin.

"Democrats continue to look at states like Wisconsin and say, 'It’s a nice place to visit, I just don’t want to stay there'," Charles Nichols, a spokesman for the Wisconsin state GOP, told the Journal Sentinel.

DNC Convention CEO Joe Solmonese explained why many delegates will sleep in the Land of Obama rather than closer to the convention site.

“Illinois has large hotels which lets us house delegations under one roof,” he told the Sun-Times.

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker, a Democrat, welcomed the business the DNC convention will bring to his state’s economy. In fact, his spokeswoman sounded almost as if the convention would take place in Chicago.

“Pritzker fought to bring the convention to the Midwest in part because it’s great for Illinois businesses. Illinois will proudly welcome guests to the 2020 Democratic convention as we play a major role in showcasing the vitality and importance of the Midwest to the nation,” the spokeswoman, Emily Bittner, told the Chicago Sun Times.

“The thousands of visitors staying in Illinois or traveling here will provide a boost to our economy, and people from all over the United States will get to enjoy the world-class hospitality of our state,” she said.

DNC Chair Tom Perez told the Journal Sentinel that local organizers secured 17,000 hotel rooms for the convention in both Wisconsin and Illinois.
