According to a tweet from SpaceX, America's next generation crewed spacecraft is almost ready for a test flight and the pad abort vehicle will be shipping to Florida very soon. The pad and in-flight abort test were projected for January 2015 but it seems to be delayed. SpaceX says the first manned test will be on December 2017 at the latest. [@SpaceX]
