Quite an accomplishment. I enjoyed watching the entire thing, but I do have a question. What was that wall that was close to where the capsule came down and what would have happened if they'd landed on it? They did come down with a pretty good thump.

The sound barrier? They would have broken it?

Looked like a dirt road to me, maybe recently scraped.

Yes, I thought the capsule would use some little rockets to slow it down a bit more at the landing.
