The launch of the next GPS satellite aboard a Delta IV rocket has been delayed so that United Launch Alliance (ULA) can further analyze adjustments to the Aerojet Rocketdyne RL10B-2 engine that were made following a fuel leak during a launch a year ago. The liftoff had been targeted for Wednesday from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The delay is not expected to impact NASA’s planned 18 Nov. launch of the Maven Mars orbiter mission on ULA’s Atlas V rocket, which uses a similar upper stage engine. ULA said the new work should be completed in the coming weeks. (Imag Credit: ULA)
