The mission of the lunar emergency escape-to-orbit system (LESS) is to provide a means for the crew of the Lunar Module (LM) or Extended Lunar Module (ELM) to escape from the surface in the event that the LM/ELM ascent stage is unsafe or unable to take off into orbit. The LESS role is to carry the two astronauts to the Command Service Module in orbit within three to four hours.
