Dr. Campins talked about the possible two sources of water for Ceres, what it means and why it is such an important discovery. We also talked about Vesta and the Dawn Mission as well as the theory that Earth water came from the asteroids. Ceres helps to validate that theory. This is a fascinating discussion about asteroids, water, and finding out more about our early start and existence. Please post any comments/questions you might have on The Space Show blog.
