SpaceX are going to test out their astronaut escape system in January

SpaceX to detonate a Falcon 9 rocket moments after launch

The booster will be attached to the Crew Dragon capsule for the upcoming test flight.

SpaceX is very close to conducting an in-flight abort test of its Crew Dragon spacecraft.

When the Crew Dragon and Falcon 9 isolated, the last is relied upon to detonate roughly 31 kilometers (19 miles) from the test site.

The Crew Dragon features an advanced emergency escape system (which was tested earlier this year) to swiftly carry astronauts to safety if something were to go wrong, experiencing about the same G-forces as a ride at Disneyland. Crew Dragon made a historic success last March by flying to one of the outpost orbit outposts (Demo-1 flight). Approximately 88 seconds after liftoff, the rocket's first stage engines will shut down. Smaller thrusters will then orient Crew Dragon as it falls back through the atmosphere, and two sets of parachutes will slow its descent before it splashes down into the Atlantic Ocean. Accidents with crushed SuperDraco system tests Dragon spacecraft crew in April, and the company and NASA have since said they have identified the cause of the problem.

After upgrades to prevent a similar failure from happening again, SpaceX performed a series of ground-based abort system tests that cleared the way for Saturday's test.

Will Robert Downey Jr. Come Back As Iron Man? May be
In a different interview, Robert Downey Jr. replied, Anything is possible, to the question of whether Iron Man would return. Malek added that the friendship has continued, and that, 'he came to visit me on set, and I couldn't believe that'.

SpaceX's GO Searcher recovery ship will be on hand to retrieve the Crew Dragon, but don't expect to see an awesome rocket landing.

SpaceX is preparing to perform an important test in collaboration with NASA.

SpaceX is one of two companies with multibillion-dollar contracts to fly NASA astronauts to and from the International Space Station on commercial spacecraft.

SpaceX is banking on this test to win NASA's trust after it asked private players to build spacecraft that can carry astronauts. The opposite firm, Boeing, will use a capsule known as Starliner to make these taxi flights for NASA. Following the test, SpaceX officials confirmed in a tweet that it had been completed successfully and revealed the January 18 launch date.

"I'm looking forward to kicking off the new year with this big Crew Dragon milestone", Behnken wrote on Twitter.
