5 ... 4 ... 3 ... 2 ... Abort Terminal count abort is running. Jason Rhian: Well, we got down to two seconds before launch and that was that. Ah ... (Announcement cuts in) Attention mission control, the pad abort involved an out of bounds start up parameter. Recycling now for another attempt, so please stand by for a new T-0 time from mission control. Jason: Oh my god! Ok, here's what just happened: we had an engine out of parameters. Basically they have all these monitors connected to each one of the Merlin engines aboard the the Falcon 9 and one of them went off of what was considered normal. So they decided, at 2 seconds the computer shuts down. What we just heard is that they're going to go for it again. It is now 1:58 and that leaves them 1 hour and 2 minutes within their window for the day, which ends at 3:00pm Eastern time. We may still see the Falcon 9 rocket take off on its inaugural flight today from NASA's Kennedy Space Center. Keep your fingers crossed. 10 ... 9 ... 8 ... 7 ... 6 ... 5 ... 4 ... 3 ... 2 ... 1 ... Liftoff! Liftoff of the Falcon 9 Falcon 9 has cleared the towers! Jason: Alright folks, I am joined today by SpaceX representative Emily Shanklin and she's going to tell us just a little bit about how she felt today during the launch of the Falcon 9 rocket. Emily? Emily: Ah, it was a good day, a little bit long, a great ending. I'm a little excited and I guess I got a little crazy towards the end there. Freaked out a little bit, but all for good reason. It was a really great day. Jason: I think we both agree that it was a very beautiful launch and it was just a very wonderful end to a great day. Emily: It was. Jason: And with that, this is going to conclude SpaceVidcast's little package on the launch of the Falcon 9. Thank you for watching. I'm Jason Rhian for SpaceVidcast. More videos at

Old hands out at NASA's Kennedy Space Center will tell you that no two launches are alike. However, the launch of Space Exploration Technologies' (SpaceX) Falcon 9 rocket was perhaps the singularly most unique rocket launch in recent memory.
