Planetary Society volunteer Ken Kremer is reporting for us from the Kennedy Space Center, where he is anticipating the launch of Dawn on September 26. Kremer is a research scientist who spends his spare time giving public outreach presentations on behalf of The Planetary Society as a volunteer and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory as a Solar System Ambassador. Thanks Ken! --ESL

eather here at the Cape is poor, with thunder and heavy rain throughout the afternoon of Sunday September 23. As a result the second stage fueling process could not be completed. The pre-launch pess conference has also been postponed to Tuesday, September 25.

As of the morning of Monday, September 24, the weather is much improved.


And via launch photographer Ben Cooper comes the news that the fueling of the second stage was completed this morning. --ESL
