SpaceX Falcon 1 Hotfire Scrubbed

Editor’s note: Saturday’s planned Hotfire of SpaceX’s Falcon 1 has been postponed – pending range availability. A ground facility valve that supplied start helium to the turbopump was closed when it should have been open. As a result, SpaceX had to empty the LOX tank. Unfortunately, the LOX supplier failed to show up that day to refill the LOX supply tanks, causing SpaceX to scrub the day’s attempt.
