In March of 2015, NASA's Dawn missionwill arrive at the dwarf planet Ceres, the first of the smaller class of planets to be discovered and the closest to Earth.

The dwarf planet Ceres, which orbits the sun in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, is a unique body in the solar system, bearing many similarities to Jupiter's moon Europaand Saturn's moon Enceladus, both considered to be potential sources for harboring life.

On Thursday, August 15, Britney Schmidt, science team liaison for the Dawn Mission, and Julie Castillo-Rogez, planetary scientist from JPL, spoke in an Google Plus Hangout titled 'Ceres: Icy World Revealed?' about the growing excitement related to the innermost icy body. [Dwarf Planets of Our Solar System (Infographic)]

"I think of Ceres actually as a game changer in the solar system," Schmidt said.

"Ceres is arguably the only one of its kind."

The innermost icy body

When Ceres was discovered in 1801, astronomers first classified it as a planet. The massive body traveled between Mars and Jupiter, where scientists had mathematically predicted a planet should lie. Further observations revealed that a number of small bodies littered the region, and Ceres was downgraded to just another asteroid within the asteroid belt. It wasn't until Pluto was classified as a dwarf planetin 2006 that Ceres was upgraded to the same level.

Well there was another planet there...

Until it was blown up and turned into an asteroid belt during the ancient intergalactic wars fought between the annunaki and the martian atlanteans...

Destroyed by that prehistoric death star spaceship we call the moon that still bares surface scars from those long forgotten and suppressed cosmic battles...

Its amazing and frightening to realize just how dumbed down and misled the human race actually is...

Nice observation...

Theres far deeper perplexing reasons why tptb keep spending billions upon billions of dollars sending probe after probe out there into the void of ancient light...

They want to find out as much as they can about our hushed up and suppressed ancient human history...

We've done this all before...

Risen up and knocked back down again and again...

For at least many millions of years...
