NASA and SpaceX rocket launch delayed until Friday after malfunction of Z actuator

The SpaceX Dragon launch this morning was delayed due to a malfunction in a mechanical actuator involved in the second rocket stage prior to launch. The next possible launch time is Friday at 5 am. The mission involves a delivery to the International Space Station (including lots of science!), as well as the potentially history-making attempt to land the first stage rocket on a ship in the Atlantic Ocean!
