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!
We know you love reading about space exploration, but did you know you can make it happen?
