Dawn Gravity Science


Vesta L-0 (raw)

Status: Archived

This data set contains archival raw, partially processed, and ancillary/supporting gravity science data acquired during the Dawn mission while the spacecraft was in orbit around the asteroid Vesta. The radio observations were carried out using the Dawn spacecraft and Earth-based receiving stations of the NASA Deep Space Network (DSN). The data set was designed primarily to support generation of high-resolution gravity field models for Vesta.

Vesta L-2 (reduced)

Status: Archived

This data set contains archival results from gravity investigations conducted during the Dawn mission while the spacecraft was in orbit around the asteroid Vesta. Radio measurements were made using the Dawn spacecraft and Earth-based stations of the NASA Deep Space Network (DSN). The data set includes a spherical harmonic model of Vesta's gravity field generated by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, radial gravity acceleration map, and Bouguet map; these results were derived from raw radio tracking data.
