    I thought that was pretty standard. The payload itself usually has the logo of the company, while the side of the rocket will have the logo of the launch vehicle's company. Or am I missing something?

    Ahh, you're right, missed it earlier. Guess they haven't done enough non-Dragon commercial flights for it to sink in yet.

    Aaand we have a delay. Launch delayed to the end of the launch window due to some leak checking.

    Yep. Some "leak check failure" between the ground equipment and the second stage. I think that path includes the umbilical connection near the end of the strongback tower, but the leak or problem could be located elsewhere too.

    I suppose they said everything they were going to say yesterday. Let's hope they post the video of the launch ASAP. Some of us need our fix.

    Launch Update
    Today's ORBCOMM launch attempt has been scrubbed to address a potential concern identified during pre-flight checks. The vehicle and payload are in good condition, and engineering teams will take the extra time to ensure the highest possible level of mission assurance prior to flight. The rocket will remain vertical on the launch pad with the next available launch opportunity targeting Tuesday, June 24th.
