SpaceX has experienced a problem during the testing of its Crew Dragon capsule

During the engine test firing at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station yesterday afternoon, an unspecified anomaly occurred that resulted in plumes of smoke rising from the test site that was visible for miles. In a statement, SpaceX said, ’Ensuring that our systems meet rigorous safety standards and detecting anomalies like this prior to flight are the main reasons why we test.’ No one was injured.

Just another opportunity to learn and make it better! New craft, new weaknesses, new chance for something to go wrong. No doubt that "anomaly" will be fixed.

Unless the price drops per seat. I'll wait. Cool to see them building it.
