thank God ISIS doesn't have access to other planets and celestial bodies in our solar system otherwise none us will have been able to see a thing out there

thank God for that

Well, now that you broached the subject on this thread, someone is bound to come along here and say that they'd trust ISIS space mission images more than they trust NASA's images.

Ahuna Mons is a volcano that rises 13,000 feet high and spreads 11 miles wide at its base.
...
"Ahuna is truly unique, being the only mountain of its kind on Ceres," he said. "It shows nothing to indicate a tectonic formation, so that led us to consider cryovolcanism as a method for its origin."

Dawn scientist Ottaviano Ruesch, of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland, is the lead author on the Science paper about Ceres volcanism. He says, "This is the only known example of a cryovolcano that potentially formed from a salty mud mix, and which formed in the geologically recent past."

Phys.org, Sept. 1, 206 - Ceres: The tiny world where volcanoes erupt ice. (photos at article)

A 13,000 foot ice volcano! That is pretty impressive for such a small planetoid. So there is water inside Ceres; and the interior is warm enough to keep it liquid. Surface temps are -40 (same source, and they take the time to say that is where both scales meet), so the water erupts upward carrying salts and the carbonate materials. The water evaporates and you get your bright spots. Here the slurry froze into an ice volcano! And a pretty big one at that!

I wonder if the eruption that created that creovolcano was caused by the impact that created a nearby crater.
