Test fire of SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft ran into problems, sending up thick clouds of smoke
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.-- Thick plumes of smoke rose over a SpaceX facility in Florida during a test fire of a Crew Dragon spacecraft on Saturday. If the issue was serious, it could derail plans to fly astronauts aboard the capsule later this year. SpaceX said the craft was undergoing a "series of engine tests" at a facility in Cape Canaveral, and something went wrong during the final stretch. SpaceX will work with NASA to determine what caused the issue. No injuries were reported.
