I think, too, that you have to remember how incredibly dark it is there. Like not being able to see your hand in front of your face. The images make it seem like a "bright" spot, but it's probably just a tiny bit lighter shade of black than the surrounding surface.
Yes true, but there are no known laws that would not allow for larger, umm, larger dwarf planets.

Perhaps, but keep in mind that our Moon is much larger than Ceres. In fact ot would have been more fitting if Ceres was our Moon (size wise). Our Moon is the largest as compared to its host planet, in our solar system.
Well, after-all, the earth did start out FLAT,then somehow became spherical, but filled with molten lava, and you cant go there. Where did we get our scientists from????
Tomorrow we will discover water-carbon based 'gods' hiding on Saturn! (After they fled the far side of the Moon to avoid being obliterated by our secret space program...)

Isn't it funny that we accept there is water everywhere in Space these days.
Didn't people/scientists spend decades insisting only Earth (and a few NON-ELECTRICAL DAMMIT comets) had water?
And wasn't it cited to a generation as the reason why nothing but silicon-based life could possibly be found anywhere in the Universe, because, well, water is just so anthropocentric a chemical compound!
