time to start a thread on one of the most interesting UMSF events of 2010...
Published thu on arXiv Ultraviolet and visible photometry of asteroid (21) Lutetia using the Hubble Space Telescope

Can't see the moons or rings or volcanoes yet . . . .


Reassuring the craft is on target and the trajectory tweaks are being computed. Getting pretty excited to see this rock up close.
