When the things U know are right are far from what they seem When the past becomes the future and time becomes a dream When the light of God is the only thing in life that will redeem Welcome, welcome 2 the dawn When the voices U hear commands U 2 entertain thee absurd When U do the action unlocks thee apocalypse of that you've heard of When the day lies before U seems the dakness in a word Welcome, welcome 2 the dawn Every pieces a puzzle and every name a clue Every charge U make is karma So be careful what U do Welcome, welcome 2 the dawn Welcome 2 the dawn Thank U.
Compuesta por: Prince. A magnetometer and laser altimeter were considered for the mission, but were not ultimately flown. With its solar array in the retracted launch position, the Dawn spacecraft is 2.
With its solar arrays fully extended, Dawn is The Dawn spacecraft was propelled by three xenon ion thrusters derived from NSTAR technology used by the Deep Space 1 spacecraft,  using one at a time. The Dawn spacecraft was able to achieve a record-breaking level of propulsion from its ion engine. Dawn carries a memory chip bearing the names of more than , space enthusiasts. Range tracking problems then delayed the launch to July 9, and then July Launch planning was then suspended in order to avoid conflicts with the Phoenix mission to Mars, which was successfully launched on August 4.
The launch of Dawn was rescheduled for September 26, ,    then September 27, due to bad weather delaying fueling of the second stage, the same problem that delayed the July 7 launch attempt.
After commanding the ship to leave the area, the launch was required to wait for the end of a collision avoidance window with the International Space Station. After initial testing, during which the ion thrusters accumulated more than 11 days 14 hours of thrust, Dawn began long-term cruise propulsion on December 17, It expended less than 72 kilograms of xenon propellant for a total change in velocity of 1.
On November 20, , Dawn performed its first trajectory correction maneuver TCM1 , firing its number 1 thruster for 2 hours, 11 minutes. The spacecraft was reported to be back in full operation two days later, with no impact on the subsequent mission identified. The root cause of the event was reported to be a software programming error.
To cruise from Earth to its targets, Dawn traveled in an elongated outward spiral trajectory. The actual Vesta chronology and estimated [ needs update ] Ceres chronology are as follows: .
Dawn was scheduled to be inserted into orbit at UTC on July 16 after a period of thrusting with its ion engines. Because its antenna was pointed away from the Earth during thrusting, scientists were not able to immediately confirm whether or not Dawn successfully made the maneuver. The spacecraft would then reorient itself, and was scheduled to check in at UTC on July After being captured by Vesta's gravity and entering its orbit on July 16, ,  Dawn moved to a lower, closer orbit by running its xenon-ion engine using solar power.
It assumed a The scientists stated that they think that Vesta is the "last of its kind" — the only remaining example of the large planetoids that came together to form the rocky planets during the formation of the Solar System.
Dawn was originally scheduled to depart Vesta and begin its two and a half year journey to Ceres on August 26, During its time in orbit around Vesta, the probe experienced several failures of its reaction wheels.
Investigators planned to modify their activities upon arrival at Ceres for close range geographical survey mapping. The Dawn team stated that they would orient the probe using a "hybrid" mode utilizing both reaction wheels and ion thrusters. Engineers determined that this hybrid mode would conserve fuel. On November 13, , during the transit, in a test preparation, Dawn engineers completed a hour-long series of exercises of said hybrid mode. On September 11, , Dawn 's ion thruster unexpectedly ceased firing and the probe began operating in a triggered safe mode.
To avoid a lapse in propulsion, the mission team hastily exchanged the active ion engine and electrical controller with another. The team stated that they had a plan in place to revive this disabled component later in The controller in the ion propulsion system may have been damaged by a high-energy particle.
Upon exiting the safe mode on September 15, , the probe's ion thruster resumed normal operation. Furthermore, the Dawn investigators also found that, after the propulsion issue, Dawn could not aim its main communications antenna towards Earth. Another antenna of weaker capacity was instead temporarily retasked. To correct the problem, the probe's computer was reset and the aiming mechanism of the main antenna was restored.
Dawn began photographing an extended disk of Ceres on December 1, ,  with images of partial rotations on January 13 and 25, released as animations. Images taken from Dawn of Ceres after January 26, , exceeded the resolution of comparable images from the Hubble Space Telescope. Because of the failure of two reaction wheels, Dawn made fewer camera observations of Ceres during its approach phase than it did during its Vesta approach. Camera observations required turning the spacecraft, which consumed precious hydrazine fuel.
Seven optical navigation photo sessions OpNav 1—7, on January 13 and 25, February 3 and 25, March 1, and April 10 and 15 and two full rotation observation sessions RC1—2, on February 12 and 19 were planned [ needs update ] before full observation begins with orbital capture. The gap in March and early April was due to a period when Ceres appears too close to the Sun from Dawn 's vantage point to take pictures safely.
Dawn entered Ceres orbit on March 6, ,  four months prior to the arrival of New Horizons at Pluto. Dawn thus became the first mission to study a dwarf planet at close range. It obtained its first full topographic map of Ceres during this period. The RC3 orbit lasted 15 days, during which Dawn alternated taking pictures and sensor measurements and then relayed the resulting data back to Earth. The spacecraft stopped twice to take images of Ceres during its spiral descent into the new orbit.
In the new Survey orbit, Dawn circled Ceres every three Earth days. On June 30, , Dawn experienced a software glitch when an anomaly in its orientation system occurred. It responded by going into safe mode and sending a signal to engineers, who fixed the error on July 2, Engineers determined the cause of the anomaly to be related to the mechanical gimbal system associated with one of Dawn's ion engines.
After switching to a separate ion engine and conducting tests from July 14 through July 16, , engineers certified the ability to continue the mission.
During this phase, Dawn continued to acquire near-global maps with the VIR and framing camera at higher resolution than in the Survey phase. It also imaged in stereo to resolve the surface in 3D.

Dawn began spiraling down to its third Ceres science orbit on June 30 but experienced a problem almost immediately and went into a protective "safe mode.
