Dwarf Planet Ceres May Harbor Life; NASA Spacecraft En Route

In the frenzy to find life elsewhere in the solar system, Mars or the outer gas giant planets’ active moons are usually the odds-on favorites.

But the dwarf planet Ceres, the largest and most massive body in the Main Asteroid Belt, may have evolved some form of thermophilic subsurface bacteria, researchers now say.

Basing this on nothing of course. Everything that they claim to be a rock has been a rock. Why would they spend billions looking for life only to cover it up when they find it?

Also, you wielding an argument you can't lose. Its the old conspiracy theorists "no news is evidence of a cover up", which makes exactly zero sense.

What do you mean "if" they actually send a probe there? The Dawn space probe was launched in 2007 and is on its way to Ceres right now and will rendezvous with it in 2015.

You are wasting your time trying to discuss this with Zeta Reticulum. He is a seagull poster in this section. He flies by, leaves a mess and doesn't return.

There is a simple reason why he does this, it is because people do what you have done, ask him reasonable questions. He is never able to supply reasonable answers.

Learned something new. I always thought Ceres was just the largest asteroid in the asteroid belt. Now it's a dwarf planet.

Hope they find something to make the trip worthwhile......

Ceres was reclassified at the same time as Pluto, back in 2006.
