NASA is testing the capabilities of the Orion capsule, which is scheduled to transport astronauts to the moon, to be careful and return it to Earth if things do not go as planned after the launch.

According to the Engadget, space agency NASA will place the capsule in the “drop” system today, where a test version of the vehicle will be launched from Cape Canaveral in Florida this morning at six miles above 1,000 miles per hour before the projection begins.

The separation engine will pull the unit away from the boosters, while the controller will be responsible for steering the vehicle back to its position in the ground.

The mission will take only 3 minutes, after which NASA will analyze the data collected from the 900 capsule sensors , In addition to microphones and temperature and pressure tools.

“This test is very important because the projection system is one of the main safety features of the spacecraft and its astronauts, as it will protect crew members who fly on board Orion during the most challenging part of the climb,” said Mark Kiraich, director of the Orion program.

The launch will begin at 7 am EDT and will last for four hours until 11 am. NASA will cover the event directly at 6:40 am ET, and everyone around the world can see it on the agency’s Web site.
