Most complicated parachute test?

Evidently, the parachute test for NASA’s Constellation program failed. The image looks rather tragic.

“This is the most complicated parachute test NASA has run since the 60 s ” said Carol Evans test manager for the parachute system at NASA s Johnson Space Center in Houston. “We are taking a close look at what caused the set-up chutes to malfunction.”

I think they’re forgetting about all the parachute testing that JPL has done for the MER and the MSL rovers.
