On Saturday, May 19, SpaceX aborted the planned launch of its Falcon 9 rocket carrying a Dragon capsule on a demonstration flight toward the International Space Station. Early data shows that high chamber pressure in Engine #5 caused a cutoff of all nine engines at T- 0.5 seconds. SpaceX will continue to look at the data and inspect the engine before setting a new launch date. The next possible opportunity is May 22 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Includes footage of launch abort and interview excerpts from Post-scrub briefing at NASA's Kennedy Space Center.
