Ten Minutes Until Launch

The countdown continues toward liftoff at 3:54 p.m. EST, 10 minutes from now. During this time, the Falcon 9’s engines will be chilled to condition them for launch, the flight computer will run its prelaunch checks and the rocket’s propellant tanks will be brought to flight pressure. Fueling of the Falcon 9 second stage began just minutes ago. Finally, SpaceX has given a “go for launch.”

About three minutes prior to launch, the access arm will swing away from the rocket. The terminal countdown begins at T-30 seconds.
