Caption: Dawn spacecraft at Ceres. Illustration of NASA's Dawn spacecraft heading towards the dwarf planet Ceres. Dawn is a robotic space probe designed to travel to the asteroid belt (between Mars and Jupiter) and study the minor planet Ceres and the asteroid Vesta (not seen), the two largest bodies in the asteroid belt. These two bodies will be studied to answer questions about their composition and formation, and the early history of the solar system. Dawn arrived at Vesta in July 2011, and reached Ceres in February 2015.
