NASA PAO saying scrub "not official," BUT the launch team is no longer proceeding with fueling... which means we won't be going anywhere.  It is official in that regard.

Why 48 hours?

Need to go horizontal for re-do of some late-load items.

Per NASA PAO: Launch Saturday would result in grapple at 10 a.m. EDT on Monday with berthing sometime to follow depending on how quick the ROBOs work.
