Quotes from the news wire:
So, I'm one hundred percent confident in the rocket to deliver us to the space station and bring us home safely.
We were violently shaken side to side, thrust back into our seats as the launch escape system ripped us away from the rocket, as all of that's happening, you're being shaken around, vision is blurry. I hear the alarm sounding and see the red light where the engine has had an emergency. I had the vivid realization we aren't making it to orbit today, we've been pulled off rocket and we have to land.
As it rips us away from the rocket, once those thrusters are done. We're like if you throw a baseball up in the air, it's going to follow this ballistic trajectory, that weightlessness was when we were peaking out and getting ready to fall back down to the Earth.
When the parachute opens, it's five to six Gs of lateral side to side of swinging back and forth, before the chutes open, we're trying to collect loose items in capsule so they don't become projectiles.
It felt like we bounced two or three times, tumbled and skidded to a stop, it was a rough ride. When we skidded to the stop and I looked out the window, I gave this huge sigh of relief.
Those 30 seconds were the longest of the entire process.
It's like going over Niagara Falls in a barrel but while you're on fire.
For a first flight for me, it was extremely memorable.
It's nerve wracking. All the emotions that are going to be kind of coursing through me, you're leaving family for an extended period of time, so it can be stressful.
