+Dawn Mission Education and Communications (E/C) ~ would you agree to some degree that we need to practise and prefect more " common " propellant ion drives technologies and not get overly invested in Xenon ion propulsion beyond what that is justifiable to the this early learning cure and these early bare bones budget " primitive " outer plaza interloping technologies imposed at a ever increasing levels by technical and fund logistic limitations ; which is butt indicative of a serious chronic deficiency in public outreach in the form of mass ignorance which we are here today attempting to redress ? <?> ?

9:47 have you ever had one of those images thats side by side but both images are slightly different to produce a 3D effect when given to each eye? When i make my eyes switch over so i line up the two images over each other the moving asteroid appears as the furthest point in the image. I line the images up with the biggest points then look around for that far star. I'm sure if the images were switched the moving asteroid would appear closest.

Introduction
Dawn Mission, a NASA Discovery Program mission, the first true spaceship with two ports of call, the most massive objects in the asteroid belt: Vesta and Ceres. The mission arrived at giant asteroid Vesta in July 2011, orbiting gathering data until September, 2012. It is not on the way to dwarf planet Ceres, where it will arrive in April of 2015.
