NASA Dawn Mission to Host 'Hasta La Vesta' Google+ Hangout
4 Sep 2012
Join NASA's Dawn mission at noon on Saturday, Sept. 8, 2012 for a Google+ Hangout featuring mission team members and fans as the spacecraft says hasta la vista to its host, asteroid Vesta, and sets its sights on the dwarf planet Ceres.
Dawn has spent a phenomenal year orbiting the giant asteroid Vesta, gathering data close up and far away with its international payload of instruments. To celebrate Dawn's achievements and upcoming voyage to Ceres, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. will host a virtual Google+ Hangout, giving the public a chance to interact with Dawn scientists and engineers as they share mission stories and answer questions about Dawn's findings and future.
Members of the public are invited to submit questions in advance of the event by email, to email@example.com, or on Facebook and Twitter at: http://www.facebook.com/dawn.mission and http://twitter.com/NASA_Dawn.
A Google+ account is required for participation. To join the Hasta La Vesta Google+ Hangout, visit http://bit.ly/dawnhangout at noon PDT on Sept. 8 and log in with your Google+ username and password.
