SpaceX Aborts Launch of Falcon 9 Rocket and Dragon Spacecraft

According to a statement from SpaceX, today's launch of the Falcon 9 Rocket and Dragon spacecraft were aborted due to what appears at this time to be an issue with the propulsion system.

The company said, "Early data indicates that the flight computer detected slightly high combustion chamber pressure on engine 5, which prompted the computer to abort the countdown. We are reviewing the data."

The press release also indicated that there would not be another attempt today.
