Okay, okay. I know they weren’t trying to go all the way to space. This is just such a fucking cool video I couldn’t help not posting it. I love space and SpaceX.

So this is SpaceX testing how the capsule holding astronauts would gtfo when something goes wrong with the rocket.

Safety can be cool hey? Well if it includes rockets and explosions and shit.

Maybe when I grow up I can become an astronaut. I would just have to stop giggling every time I hear “Pad Abort Test.”
