The glitch was a brief one, and was soon resolved. Such glitches are common in space missions, and have happened to the Curiosity Mars rover, for
example, more than once. There are a good many energetic particles in space that can affect the micro-electronics of spacecraft when they are impacted
It strikes me that if NASA wanted to conceal anything about what it has discovered, or thinks it might discover on Ceres, they aren't going about it
in a very logical, or satisfactory way. They've allowed it to be known that there is a genuine mystery surrounding the bright spots. They've spoken
frequently about the further, and better images and information that can be expected over the course of this year. If they were to release no further
information from now on, there would be very serious and persistent questions about the reason for this.
A deceptive ruse of a technical breakdown would very likely be penetrated and refuted. Many of the scientists working on the Dawn mission to Ceres are
not part of NASA, nor even American citizens. It would seem to be very difficult to silence all of these persons about such fakery, which many would
no doubt find highly objectionable.
