Title Vesta in the Light of Dawn, But Without HEDS.
Publication Date Feb 2014
Media Count 2p
Personal Author D. W. Mittlefehldt H. Y. McSween
Abstract The derivation of HEDs from Vesta is strongly supported by Dawn data (1), and these meterorites have made interpretations of Dawn spectra much more rigorous. Compared to the Moon, where samples became available after geologic mapping, the exploration of Vesta has been backwards. But what if HEDs had not been available or identified as vestan samples. What petrologic and geochemical predictions would have been possible using Dawn data, without the benefit of HEDs.
