Summary

SL3-114-1760 (25 Sept. 1973) --? An excellent view of the three main ring sail parachutes of the Skylab 3 command module as they unfurl during descent to a successful splashdown in the Pacific Ocean. This picture was taken by a hand-held 70mm Hasselblad camera, looking up through a window of the command module. These parachutes open at approximately 10,000 feet altitude. Aboard the CM were astronauts Alan L. Bean, Owen K. Garriott and Jack R. Lousma, who had just completed a 59-day visit to the Skylab space station in Earth orbit. Photo credit: NASA
