SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule was launched at 11:30am Eastern on 19th January (delayed from the 18th) aboard a Falcon 9 rocket. Approximately 90 seconds into the flight a failure was simulated triggering the Launch Abort System which pulled the Crew Capsule from the ‘failing’ rocket and land it safely on 4 parachutes. In the mean time the Falcon 9 booster exploded in a dramatic manner as it returned to Earth.
