Genesis landing site
Genesis landing site Genesis crash-landed in the Utah desert on September 8, 2004. The nominal landing plan included the snagging of the capsule in midair by helicopter (background), but because the return capsule's parachute failed to deploy, the helicopters were unable to catch the capsule before it crashed.
