Successful launch, landing and deployment. No fairing catch.

Next launch is scheduled NET Jan 18, 8:00AM EST, it will be the in flight abort test for crew dragon so it should be pretty cool to watch. I might fly down to see this one. :hmm:

I am working out in west texas (big spring) and my wife was taking me to work this morning when we saw them streaking across the sky around 5:50am. I initially thought we were looking at a meteor but they kept on running across the sky and stayed the same brightness. They were brighter than anything else in the sky. Tried to get a picture while driving but it sucked

Pretty amazing sight

Are they are gonna shut off the engines to sim a failure, can’t they still land the booster once it seperates?

It is going to be fully loaded with fuel, they arent even putting the landing legs and grid fins on it :(

But yea, shut off engines at max pressure, capsule will detect and auto pop-off, booster will probably explode soon after or on impact to the ocean

Nah the booster is going to become uncontrollable once crew dragon separates, it will likely tear apart pretty quick.
