    LADEE, the Lunar Atmosphere Dust Environment Explorer, is set to launch tomorrow from NASA Wallops Flight Facility on an Orbital Sciences Minotaur V launch vehicle. It's a neat mission with some good science on it.

    Launch is scheduled for tomorrow, Sept. 6, and will be shown on NASA TV starting at 9:30 PM EDT. If you have a chance, try and tune in.

    Wow, 30 days of systems checks before it can even start.
