Do we have a reason for the scrub?

Pretty much all is known is that the onboard computer aborted launch 10 seconds before liftoff.

 

 

And if it is an issue that can be corrected in time...

Translation: something in the guidance and navigation poll was out of range. The logs should narrow it down quickly.

 

If all goes well a retry tomorrow at 7:37 PM EDT (2337 UTC)
