A big day for #NASA, #SpaceX & the U.S. space program, as @SpaceX has conducted a very successful #CrewDragon in-flight abort test for @Commercial_Crew to demonstrate the spacecraft's ability to save its crew in case of an in-flight launch emergency. https://t.co/QkS02sXxPf— AmericaSpace (@AmericaSpace) January 19, 2020
