Dawn Mission To Vesta and Ceres






I created the cover scene for this book published in 2022 titled "Vesta and Ceres: Insights from the Dawn Mission for the Origin of the Solar System" working with co-author Dr. Carol Raymond. My name is included in the credits and is actually included on the back cover.

Carol is a principal scientist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. She was the Deputy Principal investigator for the Dawn mission and became the Principal Investigator during the extended mission.

My Dawn Art At The  NASA JPL Dawm Mission Team Collier Award Ceremony

The National Aeronautic Association (NAA) named the NASA JPL Dawn Program Team as the recipient of the 2015 Robert J. Collier Trophy “In recognition of the extraordinary achievements of orbiting and exploring protoplanet Vesta and dwarf planet Ceres, and advancing the nation’s technological capabilities in pioneering new frontiers in space travel.”  

The Collier Trophy is awarded annually "for the greatest achievement in aeronautics or astronautics in America, with respect to improving the performance, efficiency and safety of air or space vehicles, the value of which has been thoroughly demonstrated by actual use during the preceding year." The list of Collier recipients represents a timeline of air and space achievements, marking major events in the history of flight.
