Caption: Spacecraft escape system. Computer artwork showing a Launch Escape System (LES). An LES is a top-mounted rocket connected to the crew module of a manned spacecraft. It is used to quickly separate the crew module from the rest of the rocket in the case of an emergency. The LES is designed for use in situations where there is an imminent threat to the crew, such as an impending explosion. The crew module then floats back to Earth on a parachute. This form of escape system was on American Mercury and Apollo spacecraft.
