Will There Be 'Splodies?

There may not even be a burn. As this is being typed there appears to be an issue and Space-X trucks have arrived at the launch-pad and disgorged technicians, while the rockets flaps are being tested. 



However, the FAA mandated launch window extends until 8PM Houston time. For now the commentators are discussing the relative merits of cooking bacon in the oven. 

UPDATE: 
One of The Brickmuppet's Crack Team of Explodemologists has an update as of 17:37.


"They're pumping in fuel! The countdown has restarted! 
Fireworks are likely!


UPDATE 2:

It looks like they did it! no explosions are in evidence and a small fire on the pad has been extinguished. It appears this was completely successful.


A superb celebration of the 60th anniversary of Alan Shephard's 1961 flight
