Space 187 - NASA Working On A System To Return Crew Capsule To Earth If Launch Vehicle Blows Up or Fails

       One danger of a manned space launch is that there could be a major problem during launch. If this happens, there should be a way for the crew capsule to be jettisoned so that it can return safely to Earth. We have lost astronauts during launch before. There have been a variety of safety systems proposed.
