The dwarf planet Ceres that can harbor life!

Ceres is a small planet of special interest to scientists, it is located in the asteroid zone between Mars and Jupiter and they consider it a ‘living witness’ of the nascent epoch of the Solar System. But it could be more than everyone’s belief.

The dwarf planet Ceres, with its 950 kilometers in diameter, is one of the three celestial bodies in the Solar System―in addition to Mercury and the Moon―that contains water at its poles (places that never receive sunlight). The temperature in these points remains  below -150 °C. Ceres was discovered in 1801.

The frozen water of Ceres is known to be found in craters located in the dark regions. In 2016, scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Germany confirmed that these deposits point to the existence of subterranean huge oceans that can host life.

However, these alien lives will not be that which we see in the Hollywood movies, instead, it could be some kinds of viruses, bacteria, fungi or like other prototype creatures. Right now, anything is not confirmed so many people argue on this topic. According to some, there could be an advanced alien civilization hidden in the parts of the dwarf planet Ceres.
