First Dragon launch delayed

SpaceX’s first attempt to launch its Dragon capsule atop a Falcon 9 rocket was aborted with 2:50 left in the countdown. The next launch attempt has been scheduled for 10:43 a.m. ET at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

It’s not unusual for SpaceX to call off a launch with so little time left … nor is it unusual for the California-based company to fix whatever went wrong in time for at least one more try. Keep posted to find out the reason for the abort, and feel free to follow SpaceX’s webcast.
