The interviewee is one of the Long March 5 lead designers, Mou Yu. A few things he metioned:
1. They improved the engine pre-chill process to address some issues encountered during the maiden launch. And it's working. Today's countdown is very smooth.
2. LH2 loading will stop at T -5 min
3. All ground crews will be evacuated before T-3 hours

Any idea what happened to the people who were broadcasting as they drove to the launch?   Or have I missed them?   Do we know who they were?
