The Dawn Spacecraft at Ceres, the Largest Asteroid

Location: Geology 3656
Time: 2:30PM

Ceres has the largest water content among large asteroids. After orbiting asteroid Vesta for 14 months, the Dawn spacecraft used its solar-electric propulsion system to move to Ceres and orbit it. During three years at Ceres, Dawn observed anomalous ammonium, vexatious volcanoes, wandering water ice, freaky flows, effervescent evaporites, capricious carbon, and many more peculiarities. Ceres’ properties suggest that it is an evolved CM chondrite.
