With NASA's future seeming uncertain right now, I'm hoping that changes, it's nice to see something cool like this. The ion propelled spacecraft, Dawn, arrived at Vesta last week and began orbiting it. It will stay at Vesta until next July. Then it will break orbit and head for Ceres. It arrives there is 2015.
