Good luck, Dawn!

So, if everything continues to go well, Dawn will be off in a matter of six hours. I just wanted to warn you readers that, with a sick kid at home and the launch scheduled for the wee hours my time, I will not be able to live-blog the launch as I have done for others in the past (tonight I have to get up for emergencies other than rocket firings); but we'll continue to post Ken's commentaries as they come in.

Cross your fingers for the Dawn team!
