Dawn E/PO Hangouts: Ceres Series Part I - Destination Ceres: Icy World Revealed? Play

Destination Ceres: Icy World Revealed?
Britney Schmidt (Georgia Institute of Technology) and Julie Castillo-Rogez (Jet Propulsion Laboratory) discussed Ceres, a class of solar system objects that haven't yet been explored in depth, and how those explorations have the potential to change our concept of early solar system formation. We are predicting that Ceres is a dirt-covered icy world which will tell us about processes that operate in the early solar system, where, for a long time, most scientists thought ice didn't exist.

Dawn E/PO Hangouts: Ceres Series Part II - Great Expectations Play

Ceres - Great Expectations
In an awesome compliment to the first hangout, Destination Ceres: Icy World Revealed?, Dr. Katie Dyl and Dr. Andrew Rivkin were the stars of our September 5, 2013 G+ Hangout with CosmoQuest. Both are experts on water and ice in the early solar system. If you were not able to join the hangout, watch the YouTube archive above as Katie and Andy help us understand why Ceres is so interesting—its composition and what it might tell us about meteorites and other, similar asteroids when Dawn visits in 2015.
