Today’s SpaceX CRS-10 mission has been scrubbed at T-13 seconds.

According to Nasa, the Falcon 9 developed a problem with it’s thrust vectoring control system in the final minute of the countdown, casting a shadow on a mission that has already been under the public spotlight. The launch team is however setting up for a second launch attempt tomorrow, attempting to pull off a 24 hour turnaround with a resolution to the problem. The next potential launch opportunity is Sunday at 9:38:59 a.m. EST, and the weather seems to be holding out with a 70% chance of acceptable launch conditions.
