Successful launch for Dawn!

Dawn lifted off this morning at 11:34:00 UTC, achieved its proper Earth orbit, and should now be on its way to Mars. Preliminary reports indicate everything performed perfectly on the launch vehicle. I'll post further information here as I receive it.

It’s preventable … if we just look up!
