Pad Abort 2 Attitude Control Motor
July 28, 2010
The attitude control motor arrives at the U.S. Army's White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico for integration into the Pad Abort-1 (PA-1) flight test launch vehicle. Together with the abort and jettison motors, the attitude control motor will undergo an integrated flight test to evaluate the ability of the system to pull an astronaut crew to safety in the event of an emergency on a launch pad.
