Cool Pics from Orion Pad Abort 1 Flight Test

Posted on by .

After glorious animation, a live webcast and a “Best of”vodcast, the success of the Orion Pad Abort 1 Flight Test continues toamaze.  These pictures come to usvia our good buddies at White Sands Missile Range out in New Mexico, and for methey bring the experience home in a new way.

 

As one of the Orion Pad Abort 1 Team stated mid flight, “Today, we just saved astronauts’ lives.”  Even though there were no astronautsin the crew module for this test, NASA and their partners proved that thetechnology to save lives works. And as we move forward, that is great news.

You can see that the Attitude Control Motor fires immediately to provide control.  (photo: White Sands Missile Range)

All three motor systems worked as planned.  Will the chutes deploy?  (Photo: White Sands Missile Range)


Gravity dictates that the Launch Abort System lands first.  (Photo: White Sands Missile Range)


 

The Orion descends safely!  And provides a very nice picture.  (Photo: White Sands Missile Range)

    “Success in science, like many other endeavors, relies on using the right tool for the right job. And while our scientific imagination and creativity can carry us a long way, our scientific instruments allow us to collect and interpret data with unprecedented speed and reliability.”

    I would like to report that I have captured on digital film a strange
    oddity in the Bristol Channel air space in the UK.
    Thev photoraphs were taken over a period of months after a period of star form activity.
    This odd/weird sighting is designed as a coil or open ended necklace of what looks like man made aircraft engine that emit brilliant lights
    at one of the open chain there is an attached sphere, this oddity appears to change shape adding more spheres, this oddity appears to be attached to a bright starlight body and can also be linked to other bright globe lights.
    I have many photographs of this entity and am sure it is not of this planet Earth.
    Yours Faithfully

    Imagination is in the deep phsyche is it not? How then can it be explained in a camera, has that too a deep psychic imagination.
    I was once told by a helpful police officer when my car was stolen, a picture is worth a thousand words, is this true of UFO’s?

    Any technology to save the lives of any Astronaut is worth the investment and time you all are putting in. Great work, ladies and gentlemen!
