Friday Chuckle: Nice Try Fellas

It was supposed to ascend under rocket power, roll over and then eject three parachutes and come down flat.

It didn't do that.

Controllers had to self destruct it by firing all the parachute charges at once after it veered off course. They seem to be pretty chipper about the loss of the $7,000 craft and pledge to try again.
