    This LES scares me. I've been trained to fear energetics.

    The new countdown clock and crew arm and tower and all of the other weird aesthetic things make me uncomfortable, but Leland Melvin's familiar voice is a comfort.

    Looks like I've caught up. Seems the YouTube stream is two minutes behind.

    What was everyone else watching on? I was using the YouTube stream accessed from the NASA website. So I would have thought that would be the most punctual.

    From the SpaceX twitter feed.

    Standing down from launch today due to unfavorable weather in the flight path. Our next launch opportunity is Saturday, May 30 at 3:22 p.m. EDT, or 19:22 UTC

    When it was suppose to launch I was at my sisters for my nieces 18 birthday. And my sister joke it was going blow up, challenger blow up on my sisters 6th birthday.

    NASA and SpaceX both provided live coverage on their YouTube channels, although with YouTube's usual slight delay. I watched the latter, but not until after about 3 PM EDT. They had more than 900,000 viewers at the time.

    Hopefully Saturday's attempt to launch will have more success.

    Edited to add:

    YouTube has about 1-2 minutes of delay for livestreams which have enabled the "DVR" feature, letting you watch them starting at any time in the stream.

    Gwynne Shotwell is the President / Chief Operating Officer or whatever title you prefer for the running-the-operations-boss. Musk is chief engineer in both title and job. He sets the engineering directions and makes the major engineering decisions. It's not just a fancy title to please the guy with the money, he actually understands rocket engineering to a very deep level.
    With sufficient thrust, water towers fly just fine.

    And a space launch is a shot, so as long as she is there the launches will always be well shot. Good for SpaceX.

    And they may need those dates. Weather is still iffy for Cocoa Beach:

    Showers and thunderstorms likely, mainly after 1pm. Partly sunny, with a high near 86. South southwest wind 5 to 10 mph becoming southeast in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
