Photo: Technicians help remove the ATK launch abort motor from a truck after arrival at the Launch Abort System Facility. The test flight abort motor is for Exploration Flight Test 1, of NASA’s Orion Spacecraft, which is designed to safely pull the Orion crew module away from the launch vehicle in the event of an emergency on the launch pad or during the initial ascent of NASA's Space Launch System (SLS) rocket.
