NASA's Dawn Asteroid Mission Ends as Fuel Runs Out NASA's 'Dawn Mission' to an asteroid belt comes to an end

After Dawn missed out on communications sessions on Wednesday and today, NASA declared an end to the mission.

NASA's Dawn spacecraft has run out of fuel and dropped out of contact with mission control, the agency said Thursday.

"The fantastic images and data received from Dawn at Vesta and Ceres, is essential to understanding the history and evolution of the Solar system", says Tubergen. Researchers have known for about a month that Dawn was basically out of hydrazine, the fuel that kept the rocket's antennae situated toward Earth and helped turn the solar panels to the Sun to energize.

Currently, Dawn is in orbit around the dwarf planet Ceres in the asteroid belt - which is also the largest in the asteroid belt - where it will remain for at least 20 years.

In 2011, it arrived at Vesta, the second largest object in the asteroid belt that is nearly twice the size of California.

"The goals we laid at Dawn, was incredible, but every time he did, says Rayman. It's hard to say goodbye to this wonderful spaceship, but it's time", said Marc Rayman, Mission Director and Chief Engineer at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).

Dawn's demise is the latest in a series of spacecraft troubles for NASA.

After NASA launched Dawn in September 2007 the spacecraft was able to make its 6.9 billion kilometer journey thanks to power from its ion engines.

"In many ways, Dawn's legacy is just beginning", said the mission's principal Investigator, Carol Raymond of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. "Dawn's data sets will be deeply mined by scientists working on how planets grow and differentiate, and when and where life could have formed in our solar system". As the first spaceship to visit a dwarf planet, Dawn has also proved vital in revealing that these dinky worlds have the potential to support oceans. It will continue to orbit around Ceres silently for decades.

Before arriving to Ceres, the spacecraft had recorded details about new phenomena that challenged everything we know about these dwarf planets.

Shortly before Dawn used the last of its fuel, it maneuvered into a high, stable orbit, where scientists are confident it will stay for the next 50 years. Dawn is a project of the directorate's Discovery Program, managed by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. The German Aerospace Center, Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research, Italian Space Agency and Italian National Astrophysical Institute are worldwide partners on the mission team.
