Looks like a problem with the tower and not the rocket itself. But even if true, there is going to be a 4-6 month pause in flights. Falcon Heavy in 2017 now, reused first stage in 2017, maybe, and delays on the ISS delivery missions.

Fuck.

Also, because 2016 is not shitty enough, the Chinese had a launch failure Thursday.
