Produced in 2007, this overview video about NASA’s Dawn mission to giant asteroid Vesta and dwarf planet Ceres was released before the spacecraft’s launch that year. The mission greatly appreciated *Leonard Nimoy’s support and participation. Dawn investigated Vesta in 2011-2012, and will arrive at Ceres March 6, 2015.

* Leonard Nimoy passed away this past friday Feb, 27th, 2015. He will be missed. RIP.
