The only bad thing about the Abort 2 Test ; they didnt have the parachute system as part of the test
Its like being reminded of Challenger Accident ; the cabin hitting the ocean killing the crew
so having Abort 2 Test demonstrating Capsule Terminal Velocity is in poor taste ;
simulating parachute malfunction => Collecting the data
I wonder if they had simulated crew on board?

SpaceX exploding capsule spares the Orion capsule failure to truly save the crew

still waiting for the other two to pass their abort tests
