Submission + - NASA postpones Dawn Launch, Phoenix on Schedule

StaffInfection writes: "The NASA Dawn mission launch has been slipped to September 15th to begin its journey to the Asteroid belt. Dawn will orbit the two largest asteroids — Vesta and Ceres, and flyby several other smaller asteroids. The Phoenix mission to Mars, the resurrected twin lander to the ill-fated Mars Polar Lander (MPL), remains scheduled for a launch between August 3rd and August 20th, weather and systems permitting. Phoenix will execute the Mission profile of MPL — land at a high martian latitude to study surface morphology, the atmosphere and soil samples with a keen interest in water content. Link to the NASA Dawn announcement and related Phoenix links is located at http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/dawn/news/HQ_071 50_Dawn_postpone_Sep.html."
