    The Dawn spacecraft is in the asteroid belt getting never before seen images and other data. It is doing its final asteroid belt orbits. After these close-up orbits of Ceres, the spacecraft will attempt to land on the asteroid.

    The post links to a video by Scott Manley. I did this because he is usually very technically accurate, yet accessible.

    Here is the link to the JPL mission’s page on the same subject:
