Is it appropriate to remove a question, when I have the wrong information?

I recently posted a question about the reasoning behind the altitude of the Dawn Spacecraft's orbit around Ceres, and it was duly and helpfully answered. But it was kindly revealed that my understanding from the NASA and Wikipedia articles was incorrect.

On one hand, the responses were great and helpful to someone who might have thought the same thing I had. On the other hand, I feel bad about having asked a question based on the wrong information. I'd just like to do the right thing for the community, as I'm only a few months old here.

Should I remove that question?

• I just dawned on me that I might not be able to remove a question. – Mikey Mar 8 '15 at 12:50
• "Dawn" $\to$ "dawned". Nice (perhaps unintentional?) pun. – HDE 226868 Mar 8 '15 at 15:58
• For what it's worth, i enjoyed the opportunity to answer the question (with much-needed technical oversight from Mark Adler). Sometimes people find this site because a question is nagging at them, but space isn't something they regard as a real interest of theirs. Sometimes an answer to such a question can stoke that fleeting interest into an ongoing interest, if its explanation shows the person that there are actually a lot of fascinating things behind their question, and wouldn't they like to know more? :) Your question brought a trail of people just like that in your wake. Thanks for that. – kim holder Mar 16 '15 at 1:39
