Interesting new high res close up from the dwarf planet Ceres.


Recommended Posts

Here is an interesting new high res close up from the dwarf planet Ceres. Are the bright areas glowing or possibly just reflecting light, refracting crystallized Ice,Phosphorous, or just residual heat from the initial impact?
It appears some of it could be ejecta from the impact crater next to it? just some of my thoughts on it.

I'd say it's some of that Unobtainium....

Maybe one day, someone will change the name.

It's truly remarkable that we can see these photos and speculate at all.

Especially for those who watched the moon landing on TV.

USA !!

Ya I agree Luke. I remember watchin it happen on a black and white "tube"when the technology of the day for a space probe was just above lobbing an aluminum cannon ball into orbit named sputnik. but you have to admit considering the technology back then traveling in a spacecraft not much thicker than a aluminum sardine can designed solely to fly in space, the lunar lander was loaded with through-hole electronics crude by today's standards and was the first to use integrated circuits. I have to say those astronauts setting foot on the moon were some very courageous guys.

A nugget huntin buddy of mine owned the machine shop in phoenix that made the separation exploding bolts for the space shuttle booster rockets and in recent years some very cool ultra high-tech laser stuff too. we've come a long way. :200::)
