Watch live: SpaceX is about to blow up a rocket in a crucial test to show NASA that its spaceship ready to launch astronauts

  Watch live: SpaceX is about to blow up a rocket in a crucial test to show NASA that its spaceship ready to launch astronauts SpaceX plans to complete a crucial safety test on Saturday to show NASA its Crew Dragon capsule is ready to carry astronauts to space. You can watch the test live on Saturday, January 18 at 8 a.m. ET via the embedded video below. Elon Musk's aerospace company plans to blow up the rocket to simulate an emergency. If the test is successful, an unmanned Crew Dragon spacecraft will jet away from the blast, deploy parachutes, and land back down. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories . SpaceX's Crew Dragon spaceship is launching again this weekend - perhaps for its final flight before the capsule carries a crew of astronauts.

SpaceX was expected to perform an escape test for the Falcon9 rocket Saturday, but had to reschedule the event due to "poor splashdown and recovery weather.” Instead, the test has been rescheduled for Sunday (Monday in Australia), with the 6-hour test window opening up officially tonight. Here's how to watch.

The test is meant to demonstrate "Crew Dragon’s ability to safely escape the Falcon 9 rocket in the event of a failure during launch.” Here’s what that’s supposed to look like:

If everything goes according to plan, the Crew Dragon capsule will be separated from the rocket while it’s over the Atlantic ocean, and the pieces will be safely delivered to the water via parachute.

SpaceX ' s Crew Dragon capsule will take flight on a Falcon 9 rocket for a launch escape test. SpaceX is setting out to prove a critical safety system will be able to save astronaut lives in the event of a launch emergency during The Falcon 9 and Crew Dragon are currently vertical at the launchpad.

The test is to prove that astronauts could safely be ejected from the rocket should there be an issue during its launch. Ultimately, crews might travel in a similar vessel to the International Space Station.

The rocket will take off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Centre in Florida, and the launch escape will be triggered prior to 1 minute and 30 seconds into the flight. Falcon9 is expected to break up over the Atlantic Ocean, and the spacecraft is supposed to land under parachutes offshore.

NASA will be broadcasting the whole thing live. Its broadcast will begin at 7:40am ET on Sunday, which works out to Monday, 12am AEDT (20 January) in Australia. A post-test news conference is scheduled for 9:30am ET (1:30am AEDT). You can check it out here or in the embedded video below:
