Static Fire of Falcon 9 Engines


SpaceX fired up the Falcon 9 COTS 2+ nine main engines today, April 30th 2012, at 20:15 UTC. The engines fired for two seconds for engineers to go through the data and ensure the vehicle is ready for launch, set for May 7th 2012, at 13:38 UTC.

The engine firing was originally set for 19:00 UTC but a hold at T-47 seconds caused a reset in the launch countdown, The hold was due to a limit being improperly configured which caused a red line abort.
