Delay, Delay, Delay of Falcon 9 Cape Launch

United Launch Alliance’s (ULA) postponed Delta 4 launch of the U.S. Air Force’s Global Positioning System 2F-SV1 satellite (GPS 2F-SV1) has pushed back SpaceX’s first test launch of the commercial Falcon 9 booster to no earlier than June 2, SpaceX confirmed May 26.

Perhaps, just perhaps, the Virginia commercial Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport is looking better to Elon Musk's overhead 'burn rate' with every single delay day in Florida? Virginia's 'Space Island' awaits SpaceX for Wallops to orbit!

Falcon 9 currently has a 4 June window, now that the GPS launch is out of the picture.
