SpaceX is gearing up for a major Crew Dragon test flight this week, one that — if it goes well — will mark the final major milestone before the company launches astronauts into space. 

On Saturday (Jan. 18), SpaceX will launch an uncrewed Crew Dragon capsule atop a Falcon 9 rocket on a critical flight test of the spacecraft’s emergency abort system. The test, called an in-flight abort, will prove Crew Dragon’s abort system can pull astronaut crews to safety in the event of a rocket failure during launch.
