The rocket then was lifted into place for a static fire test of the rocket's Merlin engines on April 30. Time lapse video also captured the preparations for the launch rehearsal on April 29.During the test, SpaceX engineers ran through all countdown processes as though it were launch day. The exercise ended with all nine engines firing at full power for two seconds. The test validated systems for the upcoming launch of Falcon 9 on a demonstration mission as part of NASA's plan for private companies to launch cargo safely to the International Space Station.
