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.
