DAWN POSTPONED: NASA has postponed the launch of the Dawn spacecraft aboard a United Launch Alliance Delta II rocket from Cape Canaveral, Fla., by 24 hours to Sept. 27. Technicians were unable to complete fueling of the rocket's second stage Sept. 23 because of bad weather at the launch pad. The launch window lasts from 7:20 a.m. to 7:49 a.m. EDT. Dawn will visit the asteroids Vesta and Ceres.
