I'm a Mapper, He's a Mapper,
She's a Mapper, We're a Mapper,
Wouldn't you like to be a Mapper, too?
Are you interested in becoming an Asteroid Mapper? Maybe you already are one? Dawn Mission scientists and educators are holding a Google+ Hangout at 5:00 p.m. PST on December 11 to give you a little background on Dawn's citizen science project, Asteroid Mappers: Vesta Edition. You'll hear about the mission and its citizen science from the scientists who made it happen. We'll map some images of giant asteroid Vesta together. You'll get a chance to ask questions.
Just what is an Asteroid Mapper? You investigate and analyze high-resolution Dawn images of Vesta, including craters and other features, from your own computer! Dawn and CosmoQuest collaborated to create this citizen science opportunity.
Take a screen shot and email it to us – we may use it as an exemplar!
