On the coming 18 Saturday, SpaceX will lift off an uncrewed Crew Dragon pod on top of a Falcon 9 rocket on a crucial flight experiment of the space ship's casual abort structure. Should it go as planned, it will trigger the craft to perform a launch escape, using thrusters to send the capsule away from the rocket and land in the Atlantic Ocean using parachutes.

NASA expects additional traffic around the Kennedy Space Center for Saturday's test and KSC Police will be enforcing restricted access to the space center and Visitor Complex.

Here's SpaceX's 2d launch of the one year and the 2d in lawful two weeks.

SpaceX's Dragon capsule successfully docked with the station in March as part of its Demo-1 test. That it is possible you'll also learn the launch without extend from SpaceX right here, or from NASA right here.

Only a minute and a half after launch, the Falcon 9 will kill its engines and the Crew Dragon will fire its SuperDraco engines to separate from the rocket.

Bad weather usually delays rocket launches only if it impacts the rocket's path. The space company said that "due to sustained winds and rough seas in the recovery area" have promoted SpaceX to delay the test.

Although SpaceX's unmanned demonstration mission went smoothly, it has had its own problems. Thick clouds are expected to move over Kennedy Space Center, potentially impacting the rocket's flight path, while conditions at sea will calm down, according to Mike McAleenan, a launch weather officer who briefed reporters Friday.

NASA and SpaceX are targeting no earlier than Saturday, 18 January (local time), for the In-Flight Abort Test. Ever since that time, the agency has relied exclusively on Russian Federation to ferry its own astronauts to and from orbit in Soyuz spacecraft. Two NASA astronauts, Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, are expected to be the first passengers in the Crew Dragon, tasked with flying to the ISS for a quick, two-week stay. Boeing's astronaut-toting spacecraft, called Starliner, lately done its occupy orbital flight test. For the last six years, SpaceX has been developing a new capsule called the Crew Dragon for the program, created to fly on top of the company's Falcon 9 rocket and transport NASA astronauts to and from the International Space Station. As SpaceX and Boeing's capsule programs experienced delay after delay, the US has had to buy additional seats on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft. Boeing's Starliner capsule was launched on December 20 without a crew, but a problem with the mission clock prevented it from docking with the space station.

Benji Reed, SpaceX director for crew mission management, said that strict weather monitoring will be conducted before any future crew dragon launches.

Even though the company would never anticipate an emergency abort would be necessary, SpaceX "would want to understand where [astronauts] might land" in such an scenario "and we'd look at that weather as well", Reed said.
