SpaceX says it encountered an issue that forced it to drop a Crew Dragon spacecraft mockup during parachute testing — not a failure of the vehicle or its parachutes, to be clear, but still a problem nonetheless. This is now the second significant hurdle SpaceX’s Crew Dragon astronaut spacecraft has faced in the last few […]

SpaceX dropped a Crew Dragon mockup to save a helicopter and its passengers

SpaceX's hopes a human-occupied Crew Dragon flight this May are fading fast. A parachute test for the capsule failed on March 24th after a helicopter pilot was forced to drop the test vehicle early when it became unstable, threatening the pilot's safety. The test machine was destroyed as it hadn't reached "target conditions" where the parachutes would be armed, a SpaceX spokesperson told Parabolic Arc.SpaceX's hopes a human-occupied Crew Dragon flight this May are fading fast.
