Launched in 2007 with the mission of studying the protoplanets of the asteroid belt, space probe Dawn’s lifespan reached its end last year.

Funny enough, it ran out of fuel on Halloween day 2018! This spacecraft provided highly valuable data during its mission, mostly regarding the formation of planets.

It’s currently roaming in an uncontrolled state around the orbit of Ceres, and ain’t that poetic. Lost in space, forever.
