Join the Division for Planetary Sciences and the European Planetary Science Congress
in Pasadena, California
This is the second time these meetings have been joined into one. The goal of the joint meeting is to strengthen international scientific collaboration in all areas of planetary science. This is the first time the EPSC, which provides the dissemination platform for the Europlanet Research Infrastructure, will be held outside of Europe. - Click here to see the DPS 48/EPSC 11 Schedule & Plenary Speakers
Dawn team members, Michael Toplis (IRAP) and Cristina De Sanctis (INAF) will give a presentation about Dawn at Ceres.
Dawn is the only spacecraft ever to orbit a dwarf planet and is the only one ever to orbit any two extraterrestrial destinations. This year it has been orbiting closer to the surface of Ceres than the International Space Station is to Earth. Such a mission would be impossible without the use of ion propulsion, a technology that has largely been in the domain of science fiction, but which was tested extensively on the Deep Space 1 mission, paving the way for Dawn.
