Dawn @ Vesta

Vesta South Polar Region Dawn Framing Camera

The Dawn Mission is ultra cool, what’s not to love about orbiting an unexplored world.  Motoring there on ion drive and planning to motor over to a new planet (minor) on your ion jet after you’ve finished with this one.  This is what space exploration was supposed to be like….and it is, we just got too jaded in the mean time to understand what we are seeing.  This image is from the Image of the Day.
