Wednesday 9:07am ET Space X Falcon 9

And for good reason as, if successful, it would have been a historic event. But then Arianespace canceled their flight due to high-altitude winds. Blue Origin scrubbed its launch because of the rocket’s ground infrastructure. And seven minutes before Falcon 9 was set to launch, an onboard computer triggered an abort, causing the rocket to stand down for the day”.
