We are standing down from today’s launch attempt. Our systems are in great health, but our propellant temperature was slightly out of bounds, and out of extreme caution, we are scrubbed for the day. We’re proud of the team for running an extremely professional operation.


We are safely unloading the rocket now, and working to recycle for another launch attempt in the coming days.
