Dragon Spacecraft supersonic abort test coming up either tomorrow or Sunday, depending on weather @NASA @SpaceX

Best place to view is from the beach. Excitement guaranteed! http://visitportcanaveral.com/beaches/

Latest weather data suggests sustained winds and rough seas in the recovery area during the top of tomorrow’s four-hour launch escape test window; now targeting toward the end of the window. Will continue to monitor weather and update the T-0 accordingly in the morning

Standing down from today’s in-flight Crew Dragon launch escape test attempt due to sustained winds and rough seas in the recovery area. Now targeting Sunday, January 19, with a six-hour test window opening at 8:00 a.m. EST, 13:00 UTC

. @NASA and  @SpaceX are standing down from today’s  #CrewDragon In-Flight Abort test due to poor splashdown and recovery weather.  The demonstration is now targeted for Sunday, Jan. 19. The six-hour launch window will open at 8am ET.  https://go.nasa.gov/3alJMdP

Today’s  @SpaceX In-Flight Abort test, which does not have  @NASA_Astronauts onboard the spacecraft, is intended to demonstrate  #CrewDragon’s ability to reliably carry crew to safety in the unlikely event of an emergency on ascent. Watch:  https://twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1lDGLozemrbKm

Dragon high altitude, supersonic abort test is a risky mission, as it’s pushing the envelope in so many ways

Dragon has separated from Falcon 9 and its SuperDraco engines have completed their burn
