High-Speed Abort System Newly Introduced by SpaceX

SpaceX, the commercial space travel company unveils its new vision from inside of its dragon capsule as it underwent a test of its abort system, the results of which look quite promising, if not a little terrifying.

Designed for propelling astronauts swiftly from any emergency situation which may take place in the launch pad, such as a spacecraft malfunction or ground fire, the launch escape system on the dragon crew capsule is certainly one of a kind.

Once turned on, the abort system makes use of eight SuperDraco engines for making a massive 120,000 pounds of thrust, which propels the capsule at high speeds and keeps the crew safe from danger.

The rocket engines accelerate the capsule up to a maximum speed of 555km/h in just a few seconds.

The versatile abort configuration means that the Dragon crew can decide to activate the abort system at any point before or during the launch sequence.

It may arguably seem that escaping the emergency is better than the alternative, astronauts have always been reluctant for using the abort systems on their spacecraft.

The crew of the Apollo 12 spacecraft worked closely with ground controllers after their spacecraft suffered damage from lightning strikes during the launch, which avoided the astronomically expensive and dangerous spacecraft abort by a close call.

The crew faced a lot of extreme forces from the abort rocket engines and it was later reported that they turned off their cockpit voice recorder so that the officials cannot hear them sweating during this extreme abort sequence.
