NASA Tests Orion Exit Methods


NASA recently took members of the Orion crew to test methods of exiting the Orion space capsule when it splashes down into the Pacific Ocean. There will be a recovery team to assist them. However, this was also to test what that process would look like if something did not go according to plan and the recovery team was not there when Orion arrives. See below for a video of the testing!
