The Dawn spacecraft entered the orbit of the dwarf planet Ceres, located in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, at around 10am ET this morning.

I don’t know about you, but I’ll be glued to my screen to find out what exactly those bright spots are – my money is on cryovolcanoes. Because who doesn’t want to say “cryovolcano?”
