This month, #SpaceDrafts is with Dr. David O’Brien (PSI):

Dawn’s Exploration of Dwarf Planet Ceres

Join Dave & Dawn on an journey to that other Dwarf Planet in our solar system: Ceres! The largest member of the asteroid belt, Ceres is round under it’s own gravity, is differentiated, and emits water vapor, much like a terrestrial planet, but it’s orbit is inclined, and looks like other families of asteroids. It’s a unique look at conditions during the formation of our solar system!

Answer Dave’s tricky questions for a shot at cool prizes – we’ll have telescopes setup outside at sunset if it is clear!
