Ceres Has Ice – level 2

03-01-2017 15:00

Dwarf planet Ceres is in the asteroid belt. Scientists say that it has ice, which is very important for life to exist. The surface of Ceres has hydrogen which means that there might be a lot of water.

Ceres is made up of about 10% water compared to nearby Vesta, which is the second largest object in the asteroid belt.

Difficult words: dwarf (small), surface (the outside part of something), hydrogen (a gas that relates to water).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
