New Video From SpaceX Takes You for a Space Ride!


SpaceX wants to take you for a ride. Elon Musk's rocket company released new footage on Friday of its Crew Dragon capsule taking flight for the first time during a test earlier in May. The uncrewed test was designed to help engineers gather more information about the effectiveness of the capsule's abort system — a key component used to quickly propel astronauts away from a failing rocket should something bad happen during flight. Musk said after the test, "It was a great, great outcome. Had there been people on board, they would have been in great shape.” According to SpaceX, the two-minute video shows the Dragon capsule blasting off from its Florida launchpad, separating from its trunk and reaching a maximum velocity of 345 mph.
