Success: SpaceX Crew Dragon In-Flight Abort Test.  Watch again – it is amazing!

SpaceX Crew Dragon In-Flight Abort Test.  Kennedy Space Center in Florida

NASA and SpaceX targeted 8 a.m. EST, Sun., Jan. 19 for the In-Flight Abort Test. The launch window is four hours. Weather was good and blast-off happened.

This uncrewed test will demonstrate the Crew Dragon spacecraft’s escape capabilities. It will aim to prove that it can protect astronauts even in the unlikely event of an emergency during launch.

Crew Dragon will lift off from Launch Complex 39A aboard a Falcon 9 rocket, then separate from the rocket after an intentionally triggered launch escape. Dragon’s drogue and main parachutes will sequence to provide for a soft landing in the Atlantic Ocean.

Launch postponed from 18 January due to weather.
