Dawn rescheduled for September placement in museum

Errr... not really: NASA Mission to Asteroid Belt Rescheduled for September Launch. But, just taking it off the top of the Delta II rocket and putting it in the National Air and Space Museum instead of stowing it until a September launch -- someone will just drop a wrench on it in storage anyway -- is thinking one step ahead of the game. Dawn doesn't want to launch.

However, the real question on everyone's mind: will Dana still be at the Cape next weekend doing reverse I&T on Dawn or will he be back here for the Frenchy Bob Bastille Day party with his roommates?

Update: Since Dawn has been loaded with (poisonous) hydrazine, it can't be displayed in a museum. Fine. Here's another idea: chuck it.
