    SpaceX Crew Dragon parachute test

    Published on Sep 19, 2019

    The SpaceX #CrewDragon spacecraft parachutes successfully deploy during the latest development test. This test simulated a pad abort, where the vehicle is tumbling at low altitude before parachute deploy, validating SpaceX’s parachute models and margins. As a part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program, SpaceX has been developing and testing the Crew Dragon parachute system, which is comprised of two drogue parachutes and four main ring-sail parachutes—the same type of parachutes that have been commonly and successfully used for human spaceflight in the past.

    Crew Dragon launch escape demonstration

    Jan 19, 2020

    SpaceX is targeting Sunday, January 19 for an in-flight test of Crew Dragon’s launch 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.

    The six-hour test window opens at 8:00 a.m. EST, or 13:00 UTC. A backup opportunity with the same six-hour launch window opening at 8:00 a.m. EST, or 13:00 UTC, is available on Monday, January 20.

    Current weather data suggests our best opportunity for the launch escape test will be towards the end of the four-hour window, but we will continue to provide updates as new data becomes available.

    Crew Dragon in-flight abort test

    Jan 19, 2020

    SpaceX conducted an In-Flight Abort Test to demonstrate Crew Dragon’s ability to safely escape the Falcon 9 rocket in the event of a failure during launch. A Falcon 9 rocket launched the Crew Dragon on 19 January 2020, at 15:30 UTC (10:30 EST) from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Approximately 90 seconds after liftoff, Falcon 9’s first stage Merlin engines shut down and Crew Dragon’s SuperDraco thrusters burned to completion.
