SpaceX blows up rocket to test astronaut escape system

SpaceX has blown up a rocket to test an astronaut escape system as part of final trial before it can fly manned missions. A Falcon 9 rocket lifted off from Cape Canaveral and was attached to a Dragon crew capsule.The capsule separated from the rocket 80 seconds after takeoff, got clear of the rocket, reoriented itself by firing thrusters and then took a parachute ride down to the ocean.
