Oops. Looks like Boeing's autopilot software somehow misfired the rocket, burning too much fuel, and now the capsule can't get to the space station.

Boeing might make good hardware, but their software sucks!

And their software had "numerous" problems.

There are two launches scheduled today (Sunday Feb. 9), an Antares/Cygnus and an Atlas V for the Solar Orbitor, though obviously launches can be delayed by weather or technical problems.
