SpaceX Crew Dragon In-Flight Abort Test

SpaceX Crew Dragon In-Flight Abort Test

NASA and SpaceX are targeting 10:30 a.m. EST, Sun., Jan. 19 for the In-Flight Abort Test. The launch window is six hours. This uncrewed test will demonstrate the Crew Dragon spacecraft’s escape capabilities, showing 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.
