Will SpaceX Launch Tonight?

We are about to find out.  NO!  Well THAT was pretty exciting anyway.  T minus 0.00 showing on the clock, engines seemed to be fired up and then . . . shut down.

There is a possibility the launch could still go tonight IF they can figure out what happened soon enough,   the launch window will close around 0100 UTC.  — Just updated NO launch tonight.

A tweet by Elon Musk: @SpaceX Launch aborted on low thrust alarm. Rising oxygen temps due to hold for boat and helium bubble triggered alarm
