launch scrubbed just before ignition,

 

I guess some sort of warning indicator was tripped,

 

but as they say, space is hard....

  My understanding is that it is automated, so it self aborted.  It will be interesting to see what they have to say in the coming hours

Bit of an anti climax! Really hope it goes to plan soon.

I was waiting for a mega explosion when the countdown aborted but I  at first had thought the engines had started to ignite. Turned out that was an automated fire retardant system that triggers no matter what, gave the appearance of a shot of steam/exhaust.

 

 

 

Hopefully they can still get it up (ooeer) this launch window.
