Crew Dragon In-Flight Abort Test | Falcon 9

SpaceX will conduct an uncrewed In-flight Abort (IFA)Test. This will validate Crew Dragon's ability to pull crew away to safety in the event of a failure during launch. The capsule will fire its integrated SuperDraco abort motors at the point of maximum dynamic pressure (max q), on ascent, and pull itself safely clear of the Falcon 9.
