2 Mr. David Barish 3 B.S. Aeronautical Engineering, 1948 Developer of the Paraglider Died Dec. 19, 2009 With two other aeronautical engineers, he competed in the early 1960s to design a parachutelike device that could lower the Apollo space capsule to earth, gently and on an angle But in the space race with the Soviet Union, NASA decided in 1964 to go with an old fashioned parachute and accept the bump that came with the splash when the capsule hit the ocean One of the competitors, Francis Rogallo, invented the hang glider, which with its skeletal frame differed from the paragliders designed by Mr. Barish and Domina Jalbert. Paragliders have no frame connecting the canopy to the flyer s harness. That allows them to be more easily taken by backpack into remote and rocky regions. After four years as a USAF test pilot, he left the service and became a consultant to the Air Force and, eventually, to NASA Colonel Arnold L. Franklin Jr. USAF, Ret 4 M.S.
