SpaceX Cancels Launch
Taken from Phil Plait’s column on DiscoverMagazine.com”
The launch of the SpaceX Falcon 9 this morning was aborted at literally the last second — the sensors detected too high a pressure in a combustion chamber in one of the engines. Apparently this didn’t put the rocket in any danger, but it was outside the limits for an allowable launch so the computer shut things down.
That’s a shame, but the article says they’ll try again next Tuesday.
