NASA’s next launch dates

NASA has set new launch dates for the Shuttle and other missions:

Next Shuttle (STS 117): June 8

Dawn (mission to asteroids Ceres and Vesta, and nearly killed last year): June 30

Phoenix (Mars lander): August 3

Next two Shuttle launches (STS 118 and 120): August 8 and October 20

GLAST (the mission for which I am doing education work – for the next few weeks, at least): December 14

Not all of these are new, but they’re new to me at least, and maybe you too.
