Rolled it back to Pad Closeouts.  Someone in a pickup truck is out near the tank farm from looking at the video.  No one is clear on whether it is a SpaceX person investigating a problem, or someone that sneaked into the launch area.  From the camera shot, the pickup looks very similar to the one that was chased away during the launch of SN9.
Tank farm activity has stopped.  Things are uncertain about launching today at this point.

Appears to be SpaceX personnel checking out something at the tank farm.

Looks like they're loading propellant.

Looking good at the moment.  I sure hope they pull this off successfully today.

Abort after ignition.  Crud.
Out of bounds thrust on one of the engines at startup.  Done for the day.  Emptying tanks.  Maybe next week at a guess.

Now SpaceX is changing gears, saying they are not officially standing down for the day.  They are keeping their livestream up and will determine if they can try again in today's window.  They have to evaluate some data before making a final decision.

SpaceX has announced they will recycle the launch and make another attempt today at 1730 EST.

Launch abort on slightly conservative high thrust limit. Increasing thrust limit & recycling propellant for another flight attempt today.

SpaceX: *expletive deleted*ck it, raise the threshold and full send.

NASA has killed more astronauts than SpaceX, so that tends to make them a little lot more conservative.

No lives at risk here unless something goes all out Murphy on us so lets test this thing.

They are going to reignite all three engines for the flip and burn, but shut down one just before touchdown.
Brief hold, but counting down again.

Stuck the landing, but there is a fire on the ground.  Rocket is leaning a little, but doesn't look like it will topple.
