Dawn Spacecraft Launched

NASA's Dawn spacecraft is on its way to study a pair of asteroids after lifting off today from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 7:34 a.m. EDT (4:34 a.m. PDT).
(Click the picture - it's brill!)

My name is now digitally on it's way to the origin of the Solar System contained in a microchip aboard the Dawn!

The spacecraft will arrive at the asteroids Vesta and Cares sometime in 2011.
