The “historic mission” came to an end: NASA announced the loss of communication with the probe Dawn

The US space agency said the Dawn probe’s “historic mission” came to an end.

This is reported on the NASA website. The agency said that the automatic station Dawn, which investigated the asteroid belt, did not get in touch for two days in a row – October 31 and November 1. NASA experts concluded that the probe ran out of fuel.

 

“Dawn can no longer maintain a position in which its antennas were directed toward the Earth to maintain communication with the mission control center, and is also unable to change direction so that its batteries receive energy from solar panels,” the agency said in a statement. The Dawn probe was launched in 2007. Its main purpose was to study the asteroid belt. Earlier, UNIAN reported that the scientists of the Dawn mission managed to find evidence of the existence of an ancient global ocean on the dwarf planet Ceres.
