The greatest thing that could happen at Ceres or Pluto or a Pluto moon or any mission that we send out would be if we saw structures of anything that we new were not from us.. Just think of the ramifications to our thought process...

I think there is already interesting imagery of possible ancient artifacts on the moon, Mars and Martian moons..these things aren't generally accepted in the main stream and consider fringe crack pottery..I think the greatest thing would be for this stuff to finally be disclosed after decades of cover up

Astronomer's ashes nearing icy world he discovered: Pluto

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — Come Tuesday, Clyde Tombaugh will pass within 7,800 miles of the icy world he discovered 85 years ago.

His ashes are flying on NASA's New Horizons spacecraft on humanity's first journey to Pluto.

Closest pass was about an hour ago. There was a room with a few hundred people and a countdown and some cheering, but the pictures will take a while to get here because there's only so much bandwidth.
