General Procedures

If a Mission Abort is declared, the Astronauts must verify this with a code word hidden in the Habitat. The Mission Commanders will know the code word ahead of time, and they may also be used to confirm the word. The type of Abort must also be specified.

Alpha Mission Abort

If an Alpha Abort is declared, the astronauts can leave the Habitat and walk to Mission Control.

Beta Mission Abort

If a Beta Abort is declared, the Astronauts must immediately launch (P1.5.10) off the planet, dock with the AYSE Drive, and return to Earth in the most speedy fashion possible. Mission Control must continue to monitor their progress and prepare a shuttle launch to rendezvous with them when applicable.
