Cape Canaveral, Florida:  The launch of a Space Exploration Technologies Falcon 9 rocket from Florida was called off at the last minute on Tuesday due to an undisclosed technical problem, NASA said.

The rocket, carrying a Dragon cargo ship for the International Space Station, was due to lift off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

But with two minutes left in the countdown, a computer triggered an automatic abort, NASA launch commentator George Diller said. The next opportunity for launch is at 5:09 a.m. EST/1009 GMT on Friday.
