==actually I'm really glad to have these regular updates from the Dawn mission director Marc Raman== February 22, 2016 -Dawn's Exploration Continuing Smoothly Orbiting Ceres at about 610 mph (980 kilometers per hour), Dawn circled the dwarf planet five times on Feb. 19-20 with its main antenna aimed at Earth, sending pictures and spectra to NASA's Deep Space Network. Following that, it returned to pointing its sensors at the ground beneath it and has been acquiring more data since then. ==endquote== It seems like this LAMO phase of the mission, when highest resolution images, surface chemistry indications, and subsurface density formations are being recorded, is going quite successfully so far. Notwithstanding that several of us are eager to see some preliminary results on the chemistry (which have mostly not been forthcoming). Still, http://dawn.jpl.nasa.gov/multimedia/images/index.html?view=list_view&start=0 there have been some interesting high resolution images of surface features posted. these can give better ideas of subsurface tectonic processes and what the surface material is made of.
