Vesta Mappers

Some worlds are so weird as to defy all expectations. Around CosmoQuest’s Build Team, we often think of Vesta as the world Dr. Seuss Designed. With crumble zones, deformed craters, and bolder fields, its surface contains evidence of a complex history. In order to tell Vesta’s story, we need to map out her dynamic geology.

Please help us map not just craters, but also the debris ejected around them, boulders and boulder fields, and other unusual features on the enigmatic rock.
