PROJECT DESCRIPTION

In preparation for arrival at the Psyche asteroid, teams are working to create a light, web browser-based application with the ability to rotate and zoom on an arbitrary-shaped body in a normal web browser and to indicate all the places on the model where space-based data have been collected. Although we do not yet have data for Psyche, there is ample data, including shape models, for other main belt asteroids, which are being used in developing the viewer.
