A critically important test of the escape system used by Boeing's CST-100 spacecraft showed that the abort system would work and would save the crew if they needed to escape from a rocket on the pad.
However 1 of 3 parachutes failed, which is acceptable and within the design margins, but having this happen in a test will likely lead to a lot more post flight analysis to ensure this isn't the result of an issue that needs to be addressed.
