I've been told two minutes ago that the launch is delayed again.

The decision to interrupt the launch sequence was taken just 10 minutes before the planned launch time

 >:(


So what's the latest news? Would they reattempt in January or would the rocket be shipped back to Samara?

Why do they need a steering engine? Does the NK-33 not gimbal but AJ-26 does?

The NK-33 does not gimbal as produced in 1973.

Then how was the N1 supposed to maneuver?  ???

Differential throttling, presumably. (Although the N1 never flew with NK-33)

As per NK forum, the problem was with pneumatic-hydraulic system of Rocket minutes before launch.

According to my informations, launch scrub was due to failure of a valve in engine NK-33A. Probably the valve was frozen due to propellant drain.
