Just 'cause I said I would... biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Hopefully, though, this whole episode has made its point -- NASA isn't afraid to tell overbudget missions to stand down.

I just *really* wish we could get the magnetometer back on the beastie, though...

Colleen Hartman said yesterday that the arrival dates were not changed by the one-year launch delay.

Well, then, regardless of what happens with Dawn, the team behind it ought to consider opening an airline.

If the Dawn development team can't determine whether there is a subsurface ocean on Dawn, then the mission is doomed! smile.gif


The plan to include an ocean on Dawn has been scrubbed due to mass considerations.

Awww... what if they descoped it? Just included a small sea on Dawn? That might work...
