Dawn Mission Google+ Hangout

Hangout with Dawn scientists and engineers and pose the questions you've always wanted to ask! Dawn Mission's Google+ Hangout will offer a unique glimpse into discoveries to date, and insight into the next phase of the Dawn mission as its trusty ion engine guides the spacecraft to the icy dwarf planet, Ceres. The event will not only connect you to Dawn's movers and shakers, it will connect you to Dawn fans world-wide!

Before or after the Dawn Hangout? Make your own Hasta La Vesta party! Leap into hands-on science activities, ride along with Dawn's ion propulsion system in our cool interactive, make your own asteroid model, view Vesta and Ceres in the early morning sky—to name just a few ideas.
