Marc Rayman who is helping oversee the Dawn launch campaign team at KSC has told SpaceDaily.com. "The report of a worker falling [on the Dawn spacecraft] is wrong; I don't know how such a rumor even got started. A tool made inadvertent contact with the back of the solar array (i.e., the side without solar cells). There is no reason to expect this to have an effect on our plans to launch on July 7."
