Only dwarf planet in the inner Solar System.

Ceres, Dwarf planet between the planets Mars and Jupiter is scheduled for a visit By the Dawn Spacecraft.

It is a rock–ice body 950 km (590 mi) in diameter and the smallest identified dwarf planet. It contains about one-third of the mass of the asteroid belt. Discovered on 1 January 1801 by Giuseppe Piazzi, it was the first asteroid to be identified, though it was classified as a planet at the time. It is named after Ceres, the Roman goddess of growing plants, the harvest, and motherly love.

The Cererian surface is probably a mixture of water ice and various hydrated minerals such as carbonates and clays. It appears to be differentiated into a rocky core and icy mantle, and may harbor an ocean of liquid water under its surface. From Earth, the apparent magnitude of Ceres ranges from 6.7 to 9.3, and hence even at its brightest it is still too dim to be seen with the naked eye except under extremely dark skies.

The unmanned Dawn spacecraft, launched on 27 September 2007 by NASA, is expected to be the first to explore Ceres after its scheduled arrival there in 2015. After having orbited asteroid 4 Vesta since July 2011, the spacecraft departed about 5 September 2012.

While not as actively discussed as a potential home for extraterrestrial life as Mars or Europa, the potential presence of water ice has led to speculation that life may exist there, and that evidence for this could be found in hypothesized ejecta that could have come from Ceres to Earth

This vid covers a bit of the info, and conspiracy behind this subject, 14 mins, but is taken from a couple of sources.

As the video starts out with, there seems to be a bit Of Doom! associated with this Dwarf planet/Large asteroid.

There is a bright spot, that some 'To Do' has been made over, it seems. Mystery Bright Spot! DOOM!

Entertaining until 12 minutes in where he screws around with his camera and makes some serious assumptions
about what he's seeing around the sun.

The title of the post made me think Ison transformed into a dwarf planet.

Cool post still. I want to see what happens in 2015 when the Dawn craft studies it.
