In a test targeted for April 2019 known as Ascent Abort-2, NASA will verify the Orion spacecraft’s launch abort system, a tower on top of the crew module, can steer the capsule and astronauts inside it to safety in the event of an issue with the Space Launch System rocket when the spacecraft is under the highest aerodynamic loads it will experience during ascent for deep-space missions. The test is quick, fast and high, lasting less than three minutes with the test crew module reaching an average speed of Mach 1.5, roughly 1020 miles per hour, at approximately 32,000 feet in altitude.

What test? That is a CHEAP CGI demo... Oh right.. they are using that Space Station Green screen thingy.... like those fake earth pictures.... The first few seconds , i thought it was a LEGO promo video.... NASA "lost" all the date from the moon landing (convenient) and "Destroyed" the technology to go there...(REALLY?) And... they are "Rocket" scientists?!? I'm guessing they scrapped the rockets to get money for that "SELF CLEANING" Mars rover that is actually in Greenland...

Huh? Remind me to watch in April 2019.

All this hate makes me sick.
Pretty nice actually, I was just wondering one thing though. In case of a rocket failure, e.g. an explosion that happens, is this system quick enough to detach from the main rocket and ensure safety?

Is that a ps4 game or Xbox.

NASA is so far behind they have to make CG tests just to show people they're doing something. Can't we just give the NASA budget to SpaceX? We'd get a lot more progress a lot faster and only a few hundred 70 year old men would have to retire early from their cushy jobs.

Eu tenho uma fascinação enorme pela astronomia pelas galáxia,planetas, Estelares é tudo que existe no espaço meu senho desde pequena é poder sair da terra é ir até marte ,até a lua,até Júpiter,mercúrio, Vênus é a qualquer um dos planetas que habitam nossa galáxia queria um dia poder realizar meu sonho é eu vou conseguir um dia eu sei que vou

I want to know if launch abort can be done during maximum aerodynamic pressure.
