According to WTSP, SpaceX will be blowing up a Falcon 9 rocket this Saturday morning on purpose. The launch from Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral will occur at 8 a.m. this Saturday and the explosion will happen when the rocket is about 12 miles above the earth.
The test is to determine if an emergency system designed to protect astronauts will function properly. If the system works, passengers could be on board within weeks.

SpaceX is so freaking cool. Here’s how we got to this point… – Sean Roberts

Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny. That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards. After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind. He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex. He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
