Relativity Space is looking to launch their first vehicle, Terran 1 today in about 20 minutes (although they've pushed the schedule twice already today). Looks like winds are picking up. 🤞
@gsuberland Yeah hard to tell. In some views it looks pretty strong. In others less so. Reports say wind is ~ 7 m/s
@gsuberland The palm trees swaying around make it look bad, yeah. It's usually upper level winds that cause an abort however.
@cda It's not super surprising.
Bit of a shame that they didn't stick around to give more info on the reason for the scrub instead of just ending the stream.
@gsuberland Yeah. Apparently thermal constraints on their 2nd stage propellant loads were getting very marginal. I assume too warm or too much bled off (or both).

@cda those winds do not look promising :/
