This 2nd attempt today is pretty interesting so far. First try today went all 
the way to ignition, fired for about a second, but then auto-aborted because of 
~.1% low chamber pressure (turned out the fuel was slightly too cold). The 
hold-down clamps never released so it just sat there. Now they've recycled all 
the fuel to help warm it up, and are making a 2nd launch attempt on the same 
day...7 minutes to go.
