Atlas V Launch NO-GO Until After Delta II Launch

United Launch Alliance stated this morning that the launch of an Atlas V on an Air Force SATCOM deployment mission will not take place until after next week's launch of a scheduled Delta II flight from here at Cape Canaveral.

A leaky fuel valve from the centaur upper stage was noted last night following the start of vehicle fueling.

The Delta II 7925 on a flight to deliver a NAVSTAR GPS satellite is scheduled for this Tuesday, March 24th at 4:34 am EDT.
