Dawn asteroid spacecraft arrives in Spaceport Alpha

Spaceport Alpha, SciLands Second Life, SPNNewsR. Asimov Starsmith (SL) has modeled the Dawn spacecraft for the International Spaceflight Museum. While we wait for it to orbit Main Belt asteroid Vesta and get better images for the mural of our permanent exhibit, we’ve put our Dawn in a parking orbit on the walkway to the ISM auditorium stage.
