Next Falcon 9 launch delayed

spaceflightnow.com said:

SpaceX has delayed the launch of a Falcon 9 rocket and six communications satellite scheduled for Saturday after engineers encountered a problem during fueling of the two-stage booster Friday for a preflight engine firing.

SpaceX and the mission's customer, Orbcomm Inc., said the next launch attempt is likely to be later this month, after Delta 4 and Atlas 5 rockets lift off from Cape Canaveral with a GPS navigation satellite and a U.S. government intelligence payload.
