Another success of ISRO, a test to save astronauts succeeded

ISRO successfully tested the flight of Crew Escape Systems, which helped save lives of astronauts in the event of a crisis. Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) said that this was the first campaign in a series of tests to test the credibility and effectiveness of the Crew Escape System. In the event of failure of the mission, the system will be used to remove the astronauts from the spacecraft.

In a communique, ISRO said in a statement that ‘PAD Abart Systems’ successfully demonstrated the safe return of Crew module during any emergency in the test. After a countdown of five hours, the Crew Escape System module with the Pseudo-Crew module was released from Satish Dhawan Space Center located in Sriharikota (Andhra Pradesh) at 7.00 in the morning. This test lasted about 259 seconds. After the launch, the testing module remained in the air for a while and after falling into the Bay of Bengal, the distance of 2.9 kilometers in water reached Sriharikota.
