Even more PSASque: a big chunk of the initial delay was due to FTS comms
interference because they hadn't accounted for the umbilical tower's tilted
launch position. After an hour of diagnosis, they fixed the problem by moving
the FTS ground station to get a better line of sight.
After one failed ignition and more delay chasing fishing boats out of the
exclusion zone (which they do by dropping bags of flour out of helicopters onto
the boats to get their attention), the other PSASque feature is finally
launching right at the tail end of the four hour launch window.
