Abort LES tower test - it worked



Not the best footage ever, the cool part is missing. Any rocket we do wind up using to carry men must, MUST, have an abort system like this in place. Two crews died as a result of a shuttle with no credible early abort, and no capsule.

Furthermore, I would like to strongly express my desire that this capsule program be continued. Even if we don't use it on a constellation rocket, we do need a standardized capsule that could be used (if modified slightly) for deep space work.
