In our solar system we have found another place with the "source of life"

At first glance, the dwarf planet Ceres, the largest body in the main asteroid belt, does not seem to ice. However, thanks to images obtained by means of nuclear spectrograph Dawn interplanetary automatic station, NASA scientists have determined exactly where on the surface of Ceres, and in its interior you can find water. The researchers presented the findings December 12 at a meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco. "These studies support the idea that the ice separated from the rock in the early history of Ceres, forms a layer of the earth's crust, and the ice remained near the surface", - said Carol Raymond, deputy principal investigator NASA mission "Dawn".
