The Crew Capsule is used for launching astronauts into space. The heat shield which protects the crew and capsule from the intense heat of Re-entry is incorporated into the wide round base of this module.

Utilizing its thrusters, it can be maneuvered downward; or can rotate either clockwise or counter-clockwise.

Stored in the upper-most compartment of the capsule are the parachutes, which are deployed after the capsule reaches the lower atmosphere after re-entry. These parachutes slow the capsule's descent velocity to allow it to make a safe landing.

Also stored on board are several different types of inflatable stabilization devices, which are large puncture-proof inflatable flotation bags which keep the capsule right-side-up in the water and prevent it from sinking.

NOTE: Smoke flares are set off and environmentally-safe brightly-colored dyes are released into the water around the capsule to help the rescue teams spot the capsule at a distance.
