Here are the requirements for the parachute recovery system.
The portion of the rocket containing the egg and altimeter must return to the ground using a parachute recovery system. The rest of the rocket may be attached to the portion of the rocket containing the eggs, altimeter, and this parachute, or may return separately with a different recovery device of any size as long as it does so safely.

The challenge will be in the parachutes and controlling the descent rate. We will need to decide if we want everything to come down with one chute, or do we want to have a separate recovery system for the booster.

We will work with chutes from past years including 18inch, 24inch, standard and X-type chutes.
