Space-based comparison of asteroids

Thanks to several recent space missions, we now have close-up images of a few asteroids, and they show a variety of landscapes on these bodies. We would like to understand how these landscapes arise.

The student will compare the images from these asteroids and try to understand why the asteroids differ from or are similar to each other.

The student will learn statistics, image processing, and the asteroid classification system.
