Crew Dragon In-Flight Escape Demonstration Recap

"#Demo2 is the final major test for SpaceX’s human spaceflight system to be certified by NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration for operational crew missions to and from the International Space Station. SpaceX is returning human spaceflight to the United States! NASA’s Commercial Crew Program is a turning point for America’s future in space exploration that lays the groundwork for future missions to the Moon, Mars, and beyond."

On January 19th, SpaceX successfully completed an in-flight test of Crew Dragon’s launch escape capabilities from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s #KennedySpaceCenter. This test, which did not have NASA astronauts onboard the spacecraft, demonstrated #CrewDragon’s ability to reliably carry crew to safety in the unlikely event of an emergency on ascent. https://bit.ly/2AjgSgT

we are french and we're just classified in dark pop music what are you thinking about ? please thanks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTqjyi55TOo
how can i get this dumb "Please select company bubble" off my screen. I can't search unless i click it and i can't click it.
It’s business model is kind of odd. Instead of having a cart, a way to check out with an agreed upon price like other royalty free music. They seem to have this 90s business model of a label trying to manage licensing. I’ve been unable to progress on my project in hopes of using their service. And the phone number is just someone citing a list of emails attached to a voicemail. I’m probably just going to use the other services I’ve been using. It’s really unfortunate too, because there are some nice tracks that would probably make the producers of that music some money if not behind the maze of a paywall. I hope this service improves as they do have some great music and a way to sample them. (Edit) So I was able to get in touch and work with Killer tracks to get tracks for my video and I have to say it was really pleasant. I am hoping things take off, but am very happy with the professionalism and timely manner in which we were able to come to an agreement. Thank you killer tracks.
COOL
Hello there. I was wondering who I can contact for licenses for government use. Can you provide that contact information please?
Hello, Killer Tracks. I was hoping that those there could help me with (hopefully) identifying a piece of production music that has kind of perplexed me for a while now. It's in this video clip, and it's use here was from the year it was taped...1990. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1mDmU_m-do As you can hear in it, it does run a bit long, and I also have my suspicions that it was extended out a little. But I'm just wondering if it happens to be yours. Can you help me there? Thanks for reading this, and I hope you can get back to me either way. Take care.
Thank you Killer Tracks. Because of all of your music option, I have edited too many versions of just intros to segments of my documentary. And that's a good thing!
