EFT-1 Scrub; Next Attempt Friday Dec 5

Liftoff has been scrubbed today; a boat strayed into the exclusion zone causing them to miss the first target, and then since then they’ve been running into wind gusts exceeding launch commit criteria and also a problem with the fill-and-drain valves getting stuck.  (That’s a problem that has faced Delta IV Heavy before, on an NRO launch.)  They’ll recycle and try again tomorrow morning, assuming the valve issue is settled by then.
