This is a new rocket (and capsule), to be used for manned launches. The previous flown one is now dedicated to payloads only.

Still in a longer hold, T-12 right now. Looks like lift-off will be delayed a bit.

The cause of the hold is high mid-level winds.

Looking at the current simulation data (GFS model), its 41 kt in 5500 m altitude. And will get worse during the next hours, not better.

Not very hopeful this will launch today... winds usually pick up as the Sun rises.

Yeah, high windows up there around 18000 ft, just look how it is pitching up and down to correct.
