That thing has taken a hell of a pounding!

Still looks like a very interesting object though.

Hmm. Pallas might have its own version of Ceres' Cerealia Facula. Fascinating possibilities here.

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.

It has a bright spot. Might be like Cerealia Facula. Might be like Aristarchus or Tycho.
