NASA is testing out some pretty fun technology at Cape Canaveral.

It’s a zip line system that will function as an emergency exit for astronauts and crew at the space launch complex.

The seriousness of its actual purpose clearly didn’t stop them from having fun testing it out.

A team of engineers strapped into the seats, set up GoPros and glided down from the crew tower to the landing zone 1,300 feet away.
