With the upcoming premiere of the Dragon 2 in SpaceX's DM1 launch, I was wondering how similar it will be to a mission with actual astronauts. What I mean by this is things like:

  • Will the launch abort system be armed and live?

  • Will time be allocated for simulated astronauts to walk through the crew access arm?

  • Will communications and checklists with simulated astronauts be completed?

  • Are there going to be mannequin astronauts?
