WASHINGTON, Jan. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NASA's Dawn spacecraft has returned the sharpest images ever seen of the dwarf planet Ceres.
After a journey that lasted more than seven years, NASA’s Dawn spacecraft has entered its approach phase around Ceres as it prepares to become the first spacecraft ever to visit the Texas-sized dwarf planet.
Images from NASA’s Dawn Mission have been used to create a series of high-resolution geological maps of the large asteroid Vesta, revealing the variety of surface features in unprecedented detail.
The deep belt-like grooves that encircle Vesta’s equator were likely caused by a massive impact on the south pole of the asteroid, according to research currently available online.
The Dawn spacecraft has resumed normal ion thrusting after the thrusting unexpectedly stopped and the spacecraft entered safe mode on September 11.

An investigation of Vesta, a massive asteroid that orbits the Sun between Mars and Jupiter, has revealed that the planet-like body has a thicker crust than previously thought, which calls into question the internal structures of other planets in the Solar System.
Some beauty is revealed only at a second glance. When viewed with the human eye, the giant asteroid Vesta, which was the object of scrutiny by the Dawn spacecraft from 2011 to 2012, is quite unspectacular color-wise.
