SpaceX Crew Dragon suffers an anomaly during test fire Saturday

Elon Musk's SpaceX endured an abnormality in one of its Crew Dragon cases while directing motor tests at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida on 20 April Saturday, according to the organization statement.

SpaceX told Florida Today that the malfunction, and subsequent smoke, was brought about by an "anomaly".

For the last eight years, NASA has been dependent on Russian Federation to ferry its astronauts to the International Space Station, paying Roscosmos up to $81 million per seat.

Flames and smoke could be seen by beachgoers across the Space Coast and at the Kennedy Space Center. Bridenstine tweeted that NASA and SpaceX were "assessing the anomaly".

Despite the fact that Dragon and the Falcon 9 rocket are already prepared for the flight to the International Space Station (ISS), their launch was postponed to the last day of the month.

SpaceX also said that NASA has sent out a team that will be inspecting the incident alongside the company's engineers so for the time being, until the two teams will reach a conclusion, the reason the mishap happened is unknown. In a statement, the company said the failure occurred as it was conducting "a series of engine tests". They will learn, make the essential changes and securely push ahead with our Commercial Crew Program he added.

A mysterious but apparently serious incident occurred Saturday in Cape Canaveral, Florida involving the SpaceX capsule meant to carry American astronauts into space late this year, the private company and NASA announced. Another important test of the Starliner's abort system, called a pad abort, is targeted for this summer in New Mexico. It's not clear whether Saturday's incident will affect the manned test schedule.

What it means: SpaceX has bounced back quickly from setbacks before, but with human lives on the line, substantial delays are likely while the company works to fix whatever went wrong.

NASA is now faced with the fact that both of the spacecraft it supported with CCP have exhibited major failures related to their launch escape systems.

NASA officials have said SpaceX must successfully complete the in-flight abort test before moving on the first crewed flight of a Crew Dragon.
