NASA's Dawn Spacecraft
The Boeing Delta 2 rocket will launch NASA's Dawn spacecraft that will use an ion propulsion system to visit and orbit the asteroids Vesta and Ceres. This program was delayed from June 06 to Nov 06 for a program review. My good friend, Wendy, forwarded me this link, and I thought this was cool.
