From the NY Times Science section: Weeks After Killing It, NASA Resurrects Mission to Visit Asteroids http://www.nytimes.com/2006/03/28/science/space/28asteroid.html Hoo-frickin-RA! Frankly I never thought this one had the slightest chance of getting back on the mission list. So by 2011 we actually WILL be seeing up close pics of Vesta, and even Ceres! OTOH, Starwars fans I think are likely to be AWFULLY disappointed when they finally get to see what a REAL asteroid field looks like ;-). "What! That's it? Where are all the asteroids? Oh for cryin' out loud, Han Solo's grandmother could navigate through that!"
