"Could Ceres Be Home to Alien Life?": SEA video
SEA offers an 11-minute video “Could Ceres Be Home to Alien Life?”
Ceres is the largest asteroid, close to 500 miles in diameter, with one third of the mass of the asteroid belt – so it may be termed a minor planet.
It has one mountain, which may be a cryovolcano, and apparently an underground ocean, and a considerable amount of nitrogen locked in ammonia, which offers the possibility of organic chemistry around the bright spots.
It would have very low gravity.
