Packing crisps into a bag is just like landing a spacecraft

European space know-how for landing a probe on Saturn's moon Titan has helped develop food-packaging machines. The scientific challenge of dropping a potato crisp into a bag without breaking it is conceptually similar (and, we think, equally important!) to safely landing a delicate spacecraft. In both challenges, you need to consider the best speed for a safe drop and how temperature, speed and direction affect the falling object.
