5 minutes ago Elon Musk tweeted
Pods 1 and 4 now online and thrusters engaged. Dragon transitioned from free drift to active control. Yes!!

SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket lifted off on time this morning from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, sending a Dragon freighter into orbit on its way to the International Space Station. The spacecraft separated from the second stage about 10 minutes after launch.

However, SpaceX announced that the Dragon is experience some kind of problem in orbit. The company then abruptly cut off its live coverage, saying it might have more to say at a press conference in a few hours.

There were problems starting up some of the four thrusters on the Dragon.

Apparently Elon says they fixed it.
