Orion will be NASA’s safest spacecraft ever built to take humans to explore
beyond the Moon and on to Mars, and that’s by design. An integral part
of ensuring safe spaceflight is Orion’s Launch Abort System, or LAS.
This state-of-the-art crew escape system is attached to the top of the
spacecraft and can propel the crew module away from the rocket within
milliseconds should a life-threatening event arise during launch. Ascent Abort 2 is an integrated inflight test of the LAS.
