A commercial small satellite launch vehicle developed by Astra was set to launch test payload STP-27AD1 for the U.S. Space Force and the Space Test Program, until an automatic launch abort trigger was signaled by the guidance computer. Aborted at T - 0 seconds on Aug 27. The engine ignited, but the guidance computer signaled an abort condition and the rocket was automatically shut down.
