After years of studies, research, building, cancellations and reinstatements, NASA’s ambitious asteroid mission DAWN is finally set for launch on 7 July.

There is the BBC On-line report ‘NASA readies for asteroid mission’ here.
New Scientist report on some last-minute glitches, in their ‘NASA scrambles to launch Dawn asteroid mission’, here:
Finally, there is the official NASA page for the mission. Visit that here.
