NASA’s Dawn probe leaves Vesta, heads to Ceres
0

Nasa’s Dawn probe is a mission to explore the solar system’s two largest asteroids – Vesta and Ceres. Having spent around a year in orbit around Vesta, it has now left on course for Ceres, due to arrive in February 2015.

I have to confess I dont know that much about Dawn – it flies under my radar, so to speak.
