Rocket Party: SpaceX In-Flight Abort Test


[RESCHEDULED FOR WEATHER - Sunday, Jan 19th... latest: 10:30am EST launch]

This will be the only time you're allowed to be excited to see a rocket blow up, so let's enjoy it! SpaceX will be doing a test of their Crew Dragon's in-flight abort system, which means intentionally blowing up the booster at the worst possible moment, and letting the IFA system blast the dummy "astronauts" out of harm's way. Should be quite the fireworks display!

On Sunday, we started with a 6-hour launch window opening at 8:00am EST. Hoping for better weather, the launch time has been postponed further into the window this morning.
