They're evaluating the abort condition. Launch will be pushed to the second window (10:38 - 10:43 EST) today at the earliest, depending on the what caused the abort.

Yeah, wow, Dragon popped right off the second stage like it's done it a thousand times! Very impressive.

Hope the rest of the flight is equally smooth.

At todays post fllght news confrence, Elon Musk said that the dragon was carrying a secret humorous payload. He would reveal what it was tomorrow, but if you like Monty Python, you will think its funny.

Question: Was recovery of the first stage even attempted, or am I confused & thinking of F1?
