SpaceX’s in-flight abort test is scheduled to take off from Cape Canaveral this morning.
For this test, a Falcon 9 rocket will follow a trajectory to mimic a real Crew Dragon mission to ISS. About 84 seconds into launch, teams will intentionally trigger a launch escape to demonstrate Crew Dragon’s capability to safely separate from the Falcon 9 rocket.
It’s the last major test before astronauts can blast off from U.S. soil.
