Ceres! We’re going to Ceres! NASA’s Dawn spacecraft is enroute and should arrive in February 2015. Considering we’ve known about it for over 2 centuries and it 3 times closer than Saturn and 10 times closer than Neptune and their moons, I’ve always been very surprised to see the fuzzy images we have of it.
I used to Wolfram Alpha to do a comparison (as well as to test WA and it’s interpretive capabilities) and it summarized it quite nicely.
Check the size comparison and the images generated:
