Lockheed's Apollo motor passes unexpected test The Apollo launch escape mo-,small pitch control motor tor, destined to play an important role in safeguarding the lives of NJ^SA'S lunar astronauts, passed a key, and unexpected test, today 14,000 feet above a desert test range. Two solid propellant rocket motors, designed and built by Lockheed Propulsion Company of Redlands, comprise key components of the emergency launch escape subsystem of the Apollo spacecraft. These motors are the first major subsystem components to be fully "man-rated", that is qualified to be used in an actual manned launch. Today's test, conducted by NASA at White Sands Missile Range near Las Cruces, N.M., demonstrated more reaUstically than planned the capability of the launch escape motors to pro pel the spacecraft to safety when an autopilot failure aboard the Little Joe II booster caused an abnormal roll rate, allowing increased pressure to build up and destroy the booster at 14,000. The abort system was automatically fired carrying the command module to safety. Ai about 19.000 feet, the launch escape motor burned out and the spacecraft was lowered gently to the desert floor three miles down range by the parachute recovery system. One of the objectives of the trial flight was to have been a test of the launch escape motor's ability to speed the five- ton Apollo command module to safety-during an emergency at the edge of space while the booster vehicls was traveling at several times the speed of sound. With the firing of the 155,000 pound-thrust Lockheed motor, the command module was separated from the service module and whisked a safe distance away from the exploding Little Joe II launch vehicle. The Five teachers employed by Yucaipa board The Yucaipa School Board last night approved hiring of fiva new teachers, accepted resignations from three present teachers and created a new counseling position at the junior high school.

Several seconds after firing, two wing-like canards mounted near the nose of the launch' escape system deployed. After i the spacecraft passed through- its apogee of 19,000 feel, the canards reduced vehicle tumbling and stabilized the vehicle in a blunt-end-forward condition. After launch escape motor burnout, explosive bolts separated the launch escape tower, with the command module's boost protective cover (designed to protect the Apollo from the blast effects of the escape motor), from the spacecraft. Then the tower jettison motor fired, pulling the tower and! spent Lockheed motors clear of the spacecraft's trajectory. Drogue chutes were then un-i reefed to slow and stabilize the' command module for mainj parachute deployment. The drogue chutes were released! and pilot chutes were deployed. These, in turn, extracted t h ei three main parachutes which lowered the command module gently to the ground approximately 3 miles north of the launching site. According to Dr. Joseph Shea. Apollo Project Director for NASA, "this test gave us a free demonstration of the effectiveness of the launch escape and recovery systems under actual, unscheduled emergency conditions." John L.
