This morning, SpaceX's Pad Abort Test of the Crew Dragon was held. The SuperDracos ignited, pushing the Crew Dragon test article instantly off the pad! Catapulted skyward on the strength of the SuperDracos, the Crew Dragon test article is flew out over the Atlantic Ocean with the fins on the trunk section stabilizing it as it moved through the air.

The trunk section separated from the Crew Dragon. The test article deployed drogue chutes as it started its fall toward the ocean. Then three main parachutes opened to gently lower the test article to the ocean's surface.

The Crew Dragon test article splashed down just off shore from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. The flight test is unlike any seen in Florida since the days of Apollo. With its parachutes floating beside it, the spacecraft will wait for a ship to lift it out of the sea and return it to the Cape. SpaceX controllers will pour over the telemetry and other data recorded during today's flight test to evaluate the launch abort system and SuperDraco engines. NASA's Commercial Crew Program experts also will help evaluate the results as the development of one of the new generation of American spacecraft continues on pace.

In the coming months, the SpaceX team will put the Crew Dragon through an in-flight abort test that will again put the SuperDraco engines and the spacecraft through a simulated emergency. That test will take place on the opposite coast of the United States from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

The Crew Dragon is designed to carry astronauts to the International Space Station. The ability to abort from a launch or pad emergency and safely push the crew out of harm's way is a critical element for NASA's next generation of crewed spacecraft to the space station.

I took a risk and wore my +Google Glass to +Hardfest. What's an Explorer if he doesn't take risks?

What an amazing experience - the awesome music, lights, and new friends. And capturing all of this without having to drown out the true experience by staring at a phone screen while it records your "memory" - priceless.

I also took some awesome videos. I will find the best ones and post those soon.

I don't always go Hard, but when I do it's #throughglass

Unfriendly and unhelpful. Website was inaccurate for how long it would take to get a visa. They revised the website upon my request, but that didn't help with the fact that I had to spend and extra $400 to get a flight moved back a few days. Also, no rush service for visas is inconvenient and unexpected from the consulate of a country that prides itself in modern technology and moving fast ("bali bali").
