Musk's SpaceX to simulate rocket failure in final astronaut capsule test

Backup test opportunities with the same four-hour launch window opening at 8:00 am EST, are available on Sunday, 19 January and Monday, 20 January.

SpaceX has worked for years to prepare for this test.

Only a minute and a half after launch, the Falcon 9 will shut down its engines and the Crew Dragon will fire its SuperDraco engines to separate from the rocket. You can also watch the launch directly from SpaceX here, or from NASA here. At the same time, Crew Dragon will start its own engines to take off from the Falcon 9.

The bad weather at the launch site and also at the Crew Dragon's recovery zone at the sea pushed for a delay.

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying the Crew Dragon for a critical in-flight abort test launch stands atop Launch Pad 39A of NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida for a january 19, 2020 liftoff.

This means that weather officials are looking for problems in a much larger area and things are still not right.

SpaceX faces a tough weather forecast on Sunday for Crew Dragon's in-flight launch abort test. In 2018, a US astronaut and a Russian cosmonaut en route to the space station reported a problem with the rocket booster shortly after liftoff and relied on the Soyuz's launch escape system to make an emergency landing. The space agency has since relied on Russian spacecraft for hitching rides to the space station. At the end of past year, Boeing had to prematurely end his non-collected demo mission to the space station after a timer error on the spacecraft.

"Once you detach from a failing rocket, you will either have enough propellant to slow down and land before you get there, or to boost you to the other side of that zone", said Steve Payne, NASA's launch integration manager for the commercial crew program. That orbital flight test, however, did not reach the space station due to a mission clock software error. It is not clear when the vehicle will be ready for crew missions. Last year, its Crew Dragon capsule exploded during a test, a problem the company traced to a leaking valve. The research, known as 'an in-flight abort, ' will display the capabilities of the Crew Dragon structure that it can pull crews of space explorers most safely in case there is rocket malfunction during the lift-off.

When astronauts fly to the International Space Station they will do so from NASA's Kennedy Space Center's Launch Complex 39A.

"We requested from (the military), if something goes awry, such as a pad abort or an ascent abort - which is what we're talking about with this In-Flight Abort Test - then they typically would go out and deploy their teams and provide for rescuing the crew, picking them up", said Ted Mosteller, NASA's commercial crew launch and landing lead, in an interview.

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.
