The Dawn spacecraft is on its way to the Dwarf Planet Ceres, after its
successful encounter with the Asteroid Vesta. A cosmic ray collision
with the spacecraft's memory and associated software, caused a series of
major problems. The Planetary Society's Dawn Journal provides an
insightful description of the problem that developed and how the teams
went about finding an eventual solution to get the spacecraft back in
schedule for its encounter with Ceres on March 6.
