Crew Dragon Launch Escape Demonstration

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.

  • 5G (SHF) can alter behavior (when it's not lethal). The real reason for Coronavirus COVID-19 to emerge was supposedly quick expansion of China`s 5G infrastructure. USA can`t let that happen. We can also add faster China economic growth and Intels failure in providing

  • The SpaceX guy said it was falling at 25 feet per second? Um, its space stuff, ONLY do metric. No 12's or 1/4's or any other confusing thing like feet or stones! Just let us know meters per second (or minute or hour). Its all easy with metric everything is a multiple of 10 ONLY.

  • Gamma-Ray-Burst probably destroyed Mars turning it Red.. Nu-Wa's ark probably true story "And the Stars Shifted".. Perfect Sphere-Alien-Nano-Drones probably are flying around to collect data.. Earth is Heart rearranged, Mars is Wars with the M upside down, and A-I in odd letters spell out ACE G.I. like in the military!!! Mars-upials (Sail Up) -rearranged- Apes have One Finger for each planet Mercury, Venus, Earth, and then their home planet Mars!!! lol.. less gravity makes it -more- likely to take to the trees for monkeys. Aliens probably moved us here to develop tech so we can be approved into Space one Day!! Of Course Earth's non-contamination space laws keep us safe from being enslaved from Aliens from Space, lol.. Probably anyways ;) BTW: Occupy Mars/Space Force Rocks man!!!

  • So what if the fast radio bursts were like messages. Like a type of morse code meant to travel beyond the means of reach. A letter, words typed on a different paper; a medium meant to be read. What if we could imagine the FRB being like a letter being mailed. But what if the physical letter takes too long to reach its desination. What if a FRB is like mailing a letter, only open and able to be read so long as you know the language. Then you could communicate with out ever meeting, if ever possible. (Damn foo, even through worm holes and time and shit??)
