All Eyes on Vesta

NASA's Dawn spacecraft obtained this image of the giant asteroid Vesta on July 9, 2011. More details on the Dawn spacecraft mission here.

It's always a good idea to keep your students "up" on what spacecraft NASA currently has floating around "up there!" Check out the NASA website for a wealth of information on several current missions.

Example: The Final Mission of the Space Shuttle.
