Boeing and Air Force Delay Delta IV DSCS III B6 Launch

Boeing and U.S. Air Force officials are delaying Sunday's launch of the Defense Satellite Communications System (DSCS) spacecraft, DSCS III B6, aboard a Boeing Delta IV rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla., to no earlier than Aug. 4.

The launch is being delayed so that additional testing to verify launch vehicle insulation integrity can be accomplished.
