Recorded - Dec 11, 2014 As the Dawn Spacecraft approaches the dwarf planet Ceres in a matter of months, it's difficult to forget the amount of teamwork and collaboration that took place in order for amazing feats like this to be accomplished.
As of right now, the Hubble Space Telescope has the highest resolution image of Ceres, but that's all about to change as Dawn arrives and gives us all a completely new perspective of the largest object in the asteroid belt. In fact, the images taken by Hubble have been highly instrumental in the planning phases of getting Dawn to Ceres, as well as Vesta.
Join Tony Darnell, Dr. Carol Christian, and Scott Lewis, are on location at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory with Keri Bean as they discuss the long journey Dawn has made to get to Ceres. Joining them as well is Max Mutchler and Jianyang Li who worked on getting the gorgeous view from Hubble.
