NASA’s Orion spacecraft is this generation’s moonshot: mankind’s first-ever manned spacecraft built to go beyond the moon into deep space
. It’s equipped with a Launch Abort System that safely lands the craft
if a problem occurs during liftoff. This week, NASA drop-tested the system. Falling from 13,000 feet never looked so graceful.
