The company pivoted to a "wet dress rehearsal" of the launch, broadcasters said on SpaceX's live stream, continuing with preparations right up until 10 seconds before the scheduled launch. The launch will be postponed at least 48 hours.

"A pressurant valve appears to be frozen, so unless it starts operating soon, no launch today," SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeted.
