Anyone watching the live feed? Seems to be different time delays even on different youtube channels. Watching on the NASA site.

Ahhh, they could have launched (just kidding, I have no idea) . But here in Jupiter, FL (about 108 miles South of Launchpad 39A) the thunderstorms here were righteous!

I had intended on flying to the TFR to watch the launch. No way!

I watched it.

They scrubbed the launch due to too much electricity in the area and atmosphere in their path. NASA TV said that they were afraid that a launch may cause lightening or other electrical problems with the space ship.

Everything else went great, no personnel or mechanical issues, and will try again Saturday at 3:22 PM.

They mentioned something I never considerd.
Its not just the weather at the launch site,but also the projected path in case they have to abort/eject from an emergency.They have ships stationed just in case.

The conditions have to be acceptable just about everywhere that could affect the various possibilities of this flight. I'm torn between risk acceptance and risk avoidance.
