Billions and Billions of Stars - Who else is out there?

Who are we? We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people.

Interesting article about a recent discovery in space.

Seems that NASA's Dawn spacecraft saw something ....interesting...on the surface of the dwarf planet Ceres, in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.

Two lights.

Mineral deposits?  A frozen lake?

Or...something else?

We may find out soon, as Dawn continues its exploration.

It is a human conceit to think we are alone in the universe.
