News just broke, today's launch has been scrubbed. An APU heater malfunction was cited. Turn around could be as soon as tomorrow or Sunday or the vehicle could require return to shed causing a delay of weeks.

 

EDIT: Turn around time has been reset to 72 hrs minimum to 2 pm Monday at earliest. Additionally, Gabby Gifford's pass from the hospital was for only 48 hours so she'll need an extension to witness launch.
