Hopefully today there will be no errant boat or plane anywhere near launch zone :D Go SpaceX!

Very interesting how much time of the broadcast intro was dedicated to future missions rather than the current dragon mission. Exciting times appear to be close.

Whew. Better "Hold hold hold" than big "BOOOM!". Let's hope tomorrow's try will go in SpaceX traditional fashion - without a hitch :D

What's this? A SpaceX launch being delayed? Never seen that one before! :D 

 

Spoiler

In all seriousness, though, I'm glad they aborted. Better a late launch than a failed launch.

Well that was disappointing. But hey. Maybe they will launch it tomorrow? We'll see!

First rule of watching SpaceX: Expect delay. You'll never be disappointed, an occasionally pleasantly surprised.

Yeah, but next time couldn't they schedule a delay that doesn't require getting up at 6:45 am on a flarping Saturday?? *irritated coffee-deprived grumbling* :mad:

Yes I understand. I know SpaceX. Though it was at t-13 seconds! That was the worst abort ever! :confused:
