Correction of Boeing Delta II Globalstar Launch News Release

A Boeing news release that was issued earlier today announcing the July 24 of a Delta II rocket launch incorrectly stated that if a Delta II rocket launches on its scheduled July 24 date, it will share that date in history with the anniversary of the first satellite launch ever at Cape Canaveral Air Station - Bumper #8, launched in 1950. It should be noted that it was the first rocket, rather than the first satellite launched.

The Boeing Company regrets the error.
