Space Exploration Technologies has responded to Hyperbola’s enquiry about the last minute announcement of the delay to the company’s first commercial launch with its Falcon 1 rocket, scheduled for 20 April, and denied there is any damage to the rocket:
We are re-evaluating predicted launch vehicle environments on the satellite to ensure all systems are ready to support a successful launch. As for this being a “late” find, flushing out this type of potential issue is exactly why we do pre-launch tests and checkouts. Contrary to other reports, there is no damage to the launch vehicle (all prelaunch checks were accomplished successfully, including the successful static test fire of the vehicle last Wednesday). We are evaluating the extent of the delay, and I will let you know as soon as we have a new date for both RazakSAT and Falcon 9.
