Boeing and ULA demo their Emergency Egress System for crewed space launches

Speeding strapped in a chair with feet dangling free over a 1,200-foot drop, I try to imagine this isn't a thrill ride tourist attraction, and is instead a key safety system astronauts will rely on during crewed space launches. Because that's what it is, really – with a few changes.

Boeing and the ULA?are getting closer to launching their CST-100 Starliner aboard an Atlas V rocket, as a private contractor shuttling astronauts to and from the International Space Station. The space companies wanted to give a true demonstration of their progress, so they invited us to check out their Emergency Egress System (EES) in action – not on a space center pad on a working rocket, where it'll eventually provide crew an abort option prior to launch, but on a zipline spanning Colorado's Royal Gorge.

The EES is a key component of the UlA and Boeing's plans to operate a regular commercial shuttle service for original operations. The ULA's use of a slide-wire system basically operates like a zipline, providing a quick way for crew to get from the shuttle Starliner shuttle atop the Atlas V down to the relative safety of the ground (where they'll get into what is essentially an armoured personnel carrier to drive the rest of the way to safety) in a minimal time, and without having to rely on ejection seats or rockets attached direct to the crew capsule that can separate it from the main booster.
