SpaceX Aborts Test Flight To ISS

7 posts in this topic

Looks like they had an engine failure due to high pressure in one of the nine main engines on the Dragon 9 rocket and had to abort. Pretty cool to see that we're really close to commercial flights into space won't be long now until the average Joe can purchase a ticket into orbit. I'm sure we'll see this in our life time.

Yeah, and then we can also quit having to rely on the Russians to get us to the ISS.

Dragon is now berthed at the ISS! I had nothing better to do this morning, so I watched it live on NASA TV.

This was great! I'm looking forward to SpaceX sending astronauts up in the Dragon in a few years. From what I read, it'll easily carry 7 at a time.
