Dr. Carol Neese coordinates the archiving of groundbased and spacecraft data on asteroids and interplanetary dust, as part of the Asteroid/Dust Subnode of NASA's Planetary Data System (PDS). Current archiving projects include the data from the Hayabusa mission, a Japanese sample-return mission to the asteroid Itokawa, as well as Dawn, a mission to the large asteroids Vesta and Ceres, and the data from the dust instruments on Cassini, Galileo, and Ulysses. Past archiving projects include the NEAR mission to the asteroid Eros, and groundbased data including asteroid spectra, lightcurves, polarimetry, and radar data, as well as asteroid family classifications, albedos, proper elements, and many others. The complete archive can be accessed at the PDS Asteroid/Dust Subnode web site.
