Space Updates: Endeavour's rollout and Dawn's Launch Delayed

The Dawn spacecraft, a NASA mission bound for Vesta and Ceres (two large planetoids in the Asteroid Belt) has been delayed, with a liftoff scheduled no earlier than the end of this week.

In the meantime, bad weather has forced a delay for the rollout of Space Shuttle Endeavour to Pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center in preparation for her August launch to the International Space Station. Rollout is now scheduled for around 10 PM EDT on Tuesday, July 10.

More information on both stories can be found at NASASpaceFlight.com or Space.com.
