No sound on my office PC so not sure what's going on.

they appearto be holding countdown at T minus 4 mins.
seems like its due to weather.

I was watching that in the background whilst pretending to work. It seems strange (but understandable ath the same time) that a project of that immensity complexity can be held up by a windspeed of 10mph being too high.

The flight controllers all sounded so , well, ... controlled ... for want of a better word, as they just wound down their day job with " back again to do it tomorrow, I guess, thank you all".

I wish I could remain as calm and placid when under pressure!

There was a ship in the splash down area, which delayed it. As it is only a 2 minute flight they want it to be perfect.
