Is expected to map temperatures of Ceres? I expected Already for long time :-/


Some pictures showing temperature have been generated. Here's a few that I am not sure if have been posted to the Photojournal, where you can find the others. Don't know about global or other larger maps, or time series of temperature.

Thanks!

However, the VIR images are of the last year.
Ceres from this year begins to warm. The mission will not arrive to the maximum hot season of Ceres, but it could show more high temperatures in the next months....

ADMIN MODE: Moved four recent posts to the former "Water Vapor on Ceres" thread, which has been retitled "Ceres Geology". I think that discussion will continue long after the Dawn mission is completed. Thanks! smile.gif

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.
