 From SpaceX:

SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon spacecraft were set to liftoff from 
Launch Complex 40 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, for 
their fifth official Commercial Resupply (CRS) mission to the orbiting lab.


Launch Update:

During the terminal count engineers observed drift on one of the two 
thrust vector actuators on the second stage that would likely have 
caused an automatic abort. Engineers called a hold in order to take a 
closer look. SpaceX is scrubbed for today and we are now targeting 
launch on Jan. 9th at 5:09am ET.


The SpaceX launches are streamed live on Livestream. Very cool!
