Dawn Blog

As the Dawn website prepares for final mission archival, we will be postponing the Dawn Journal for the month of July.
Please stay tuned for the August issue.

Chief Engineer/ Mission Director, JPL

The centerpiece of our blog is the Dawn Journal, starring Dawn’s Chief Engineer, Dr. Marc Rayman. He has chronicled Dawn monthly since before the spacecraft’s launch on September 27, 2007, unpacking the engineering, science and technology of the mission for the public. Highly entertaining and carefully detailed, Marc gives us an inside look at the evolution of a NASA mission. Starting in 2013, the Dawn Blog included contributions from other team members as well, sharing mission science from the main asteroid belt.
