CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — During a series of engine tests Saturday afternoon, a SpaceX official said a Crew Dragon vehicle experienced an "anomaly," which witnesses said sent a large plume of smoke into the sky at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
Witnesses reported seeing the large plume of smoke around 3:30 p.m.
Officials did not say if this would cause any delay for the launch of a Crew Dragon capsule targeted for July.
SpaceX's Crew Dragon successfully flew without a crew to the International Space Station in March. Officials had previously said the first flight with astronauts could be as early as this summer, but the schedule is under review.
