  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

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.
