Dragon Launch Scrubbed

Apparently the pressure surrounding the SpaceX COTS 2/3 launch early Saturday morning ultimately found an outlet. Unfortunately, it was in the  number 5 Merlin engine. According to early reports, a high chamber pressure reading triggered an automatic abort.  If further analysis reveals the problem can be corrected by adjusting the sensor’s parameters, then  new launch attempt will be scheduled for early on Tuesday morning.
