And yet another capsule: Crew Dragon pad abort test

Pad abort test of the Crew Dragon

Crew Dragon test… pulled, not pushed, off the pad by its own builtin SuperDraco thrusters.

Edit: Or was it pushed? I suppose that depends where the center of mass was. Behind the SuperDraco nozzles, I suspect, but I don’t know for sure.
