SpaceX tested with success the Crew Dragon’s launch in-flight escape capabilities from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
This test, which does not have NASA astronauts onboard the spacecraft, is intended to demonstrate Crew Dragon’s ability to reliably carry crew to safety in the unlikely event of an emergency on ascent.
