The escape tower of the Gauchito rocket has been proven out.

The escape tower of the Gauchito rocket has been proven out, according to Pablo de Leon, leader of the Ansari X PRIZE team from Argentina. DeLeon reports that, “A half scale vehicle was tested 100 miles South of Buenos Aires, and the results were flawless…This is another milestone in our project. Successful separation of the capsule in the event of a launch vehicle failure is an important achievement.”
