A Parachute is an item used to accompany the Galacticraft Spaceship. The purpose of a Parachute is to prevent fall damage when you reenter the Earth's atmosphere after an adventure in space. Once you have constructed and fueled a Spaceship and attempt to launch, it will advise that you bring along a parachute if you don't already have one. This is for your own protection. A Parachute is assigned a special place in your inventory which in survival mode, is just to the right of the crafting area, yet is nonexistent in creative mode. A parachute will automatically deploy when you reenter the atmosphere from either flying back to earth in a Spaceship, or falling off of a Space Station. However, if you jump from a Spaceship mid-takeoff on Earth, you will plumit to your death without ejecting a parachute. If returning home in a Spaceship a seperate parachute carrying a chest will slowly descend next to you. This chest contains a Spaceship, a Partially Filled Fuel Canister, and anything that was left in the Spaceships inventory. The parachute automatically deploys when you re-enter the earth's atmosphere, it also gives you some basic gliding control while in the air.
It requires 3 canvas and 3 string, canvas is made from 5 string and two sticks.
