Space X Rocket Failure

Space X has announced the cause of the failure of the June 28 Dragon launch. Apparently, a brace holding a liquid helium tank broke. They think it was a defect in the part - and are saying that they won't be able to resume launches until September.

They're also going to defer testing of the Falcon heavy lift rocket (presumably because it uses a similar design in that area). Oh, and switch vendors...
