To Boldly Go . . . Well, You Know:
NASA’S DAWN MISSION TO THE ASTEROID BELT



Dr. Marc Rayman, Dawn Chief Engineer and Mission Director, will give a fascinating and entertaining presentation on the Dawn mission and its use of ion propulsion as well as its two exotic destinations, Vesta and Ceres (the first dwarf planet ever discovered). He will also share the excitement and profundity of controlling a spacecraft in deep space.

The ambitious and exciting Dawn mission, launched in September 2007, is one of NASA’s most remarkable ventures into the solar system. The alien landscapes Dawn reveals provide humankind with a new perspective on the solar system. Remnants from the time that planets were formed, Ceres and Vesta hold clues that will help scientists understand the dawn of the solar system.
