In the thirteen months Dawn orbited the giant protoplanet Vesta, the mission gathered tens of thousands of images. For the science team, the work of analyzing the data has just begun. Dawn’s new citizen science project, Asteroid Mappers, invites you to help! A collaboration with CosmoQuest, Asteroid Mappers involves participants in the art of interpreting cool images from Vesta. The accumulated findings can help the Dawn Science Team make sense of new elements on the surface of Vesta: its age, its composition, its revealing patterns. Participate in the scientific endeavor at the heart of the Dawn mission. For more information and to participate, visit http://1.usa.gov/UxdfCI.
