As most of you probably already know 4 Vesta, the fourth asteroid to be discovered, is now the largest known asteroid (in terms of mass) in the solar system, given that 1 Ceres was promoted to being a dwarf planet. It is also a protoplanet, an embryonic terrestrial planet. Some even refer to it as the smallest terrestrial. It is a fully differentiated body credited with having the oldest known surface in the solar system. It is a carefully preserved relic from the very early days of the solar system. Some of you will also remember that NASA’s Dawn spacecraft spent nearly 14 months in orbit around 4 Vesta in 2011 – 2012. This book, coming on the heels of my two books on ISON, is a detailed, no holds barred, quite technical treatise on this intriguing minor planet. I have been working on this book for nearly 21 months – albeit having to break off for a few months to write the ISON books. If you like asteroids you will definitely enjoy this book.
It is available on all electronic reading platforms whether it be: PC, Mac, Unix, iPhone, iPad, Android etc.
