And we're at L-60 mins. Reminder to all (especially for you "new people" ;)) this is an update only thread. Use the discussion and party threads for everything else.

SpaceflightNow reporting the launch has just been delayed:

Quote
DELAY. The Falcon 9 rocket will not lift off as scheduled at 5:40 p.m. EDT (2140 GMT). The countdown is holding, but officials have not disclosed the reason for the pause.

This evening's launch window extends to 7:40 p.m. EDT (2340 GMT).

I've not heard they started prop loading. So T-0 moving.

EDIT: As above then.

Hopefully they will start the webcast and give us an update.

Because it's small enough for the embed to show the whole picture, I think that just means how people have viewed the thread :)

Looking at MarekCyzio's photo, it doesn't look like weather is forbidding anybody from crossing the Karman line.

It's the end of the window; one more hold, and we're scrubbed.
