The SpaceX sets the stage for the astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley to rehearse on Friday. SpaceX raises the Crew Dragon capsule and Falcon 9 rocket vertically at the 39A launch pad. The 39A launch pad is in Florida, and the process took place on Thursday. The astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley are the first pilots of the Crew Dragon’s mission.

The astronauts bring rich space flying experience with them. The experience will help the SpaceX in future endeavors. The first pilot mission of Crew Dragon will take place in the latter half of the year. The astronauts will experience a vital in-flight test and the emergency escape of the space ship on Saturday.

The NASA officials gave their approval to SpaceX for proceeding with the final preparations. Officials of SpaceX also convene with NASA and provide permission for the Crew Dragon In-Flight Abort Test on Saturday. The test flight will be set for the liftoff from the 39A launch pad on Saturday. The liftoff will have a four-hour window that opens at 8 a.m. EST or 13.00 GMT. The official weather forecast also makes it clear of having a clear sky on Saturday for the test flight.

The Falcon 9 rocket and its insights

The Falcon 9 rocket has a height of 215 feet or 65 meters. Falcon 9 will give a thrust 1.7 million pounds, which will generate from its nine Merlin 1D engine. The rocket also possesses a standard launch trajectory. It will arc towards the east of the Atlantic Ocean. Falcon 9 rocket can accelerate the Crew Dragon more than the sound speed. The speed helps in reaching a supersonic velocity threshold, which is predetermined. After hitting the velocity, the rocket will shut down all its main engines and will stimulate the launch failure.
