At Astrotech, workers prepare the Dawn spacecraft, at left, for installation of a second set of solar array panels, at right. Together, the panels extend 64.6 feet when fully open. Dawn is scheduled to launch June 30 aboard a Delta II rocket from Launch Complex 17-B at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Dawn's mission is to explore two of the asteroid belt's most intriguing and dissimilar occupants: asteroid Vesta and the dwarf planet Ceres. Photo credit: NASA/George Shelton
