Thanks for posting this, Mary.

While science is an interesting subject to me as well, it seems my time is so concentrated on other worldwide subjects that I rarely get an opportunity to satisfy the scientifically curious side of my personality.

I can remember, in grade school, wondering why humans think that all planets have inhabitants who require the same elements to survive as humans on this planet. (Maybe they don't need water and oxygen, etc.)

This point (from the article) stuck in my mind:

"It makes Ceres a more exciting target" for exploration, he said."

For some reason, considering the damage done to the planet we are already living in, I hope we DON'T.

Thanks for posting, my friend.
