Where Earthlings Came From?
The distant world Ceres, the smallest known dwarf planet in the solar system, lies within the asteroid belt. It was called a planet after its discovery in 1801, then later downgraded to asteroid status. With the latest planet definition from the International Astronomical Union, the round object is now considered a dwarf planet. Is there a chance that this exotic world is home to extraterrestrial organisms?

Some scientists think
it's possible that life on Earth came here on bits and pieces that have fallen off Ceres and entered our atmosphere in meteors. The basis of this theory, is that Ceres seems to have escaped catastrophic collisions that caused past mass extinctions on earth and other planets in our solar system. We will know more when Dawn reaches Ceres in 2015.

Kepler Takes Off

Still from Launch video....3/6/09

Read the whole story and watch the video HERE.

Once it's settled
into an Earth-trailing orbit around the sun, Kepler will stare nonstop at 100,000 stars near the Cygnus and Lyra constellations, between 600 and 3,000 light years away. The telescope will watch for any dimming, or winks, in the stellar brightness that might be caused by orbiting planets.
