ISRO conducts first escape test for India’s manned mission to space

On Thursday morning, ISRO took the first, small but significant step towards realizing human space flight by successfully conducting a test of the Crew Escape System that provides an escape mechanism for astronauts if the launch operation is aborted.

PAT (pad abort test) is the first in a series of tests to qualify a crew escape system technology of a manned mission in the future.

It is an emergency escape measure to quickly pull the astronaut cabin along with crew out to a safe distance from launch vehicle during a launch abort.
