Engine Failure Investigation Delays Second Cygnus Launch

Orbital's Second Cygnus ISS Resupply Flight Postponed - NET July 1

"The new launch schedule reflects the timing of the investigation into the cause of an AJ26 engine failure that occurred in late May at NASA's Stennis Space Center during customary acceptance testing. All other elements of the Orb-2 mission are prepared to move forward, including the Cygnus spacecraft, which is fueled and, except for late-load cargo, is packed with its manifest of ISS cargo."
