New launch date for Kaguya: September 13

According to this website hosted by Goddard Space Flight Center, Kaguya has been given a new launch date of September 13. Its launch was delayed by the discovery that condensers in its two mini-satellites had been installed upside down.

The second week in September is going to be crazy busy! Dawn's launch, Cassini's encounter with Iapetus, now Kaguya is launching. That will put a huge strain on the Deep Space Network, which will have to support both launches and somehow also receive all of Cassini's exciting and unprecedented data from the Iapetus encounter.

Thanks to "spdf" on unmannedspaceflight.com for the tip.
