How long would it take to get from Earth to Ceres?

How long would it take a human currently on Earth to reach Ceres? Currently, we have no capability to even go back to the Moon, let alone any farther. A reasonable estimate would be 25 years from the time somebody decides to go back into space beyond Low Earth Orbit. The trip itself would take about 2.5 years, depending on the type of propulsion and the urgency of the mission.

The NASA space probe Dawn was launched in 2007 to study both Ceres and Vesta. Using very low-powered ion engines, Dawn arrived near Vesta in 2011, spent nearly 2 years orbiting Vesta, and arrived in Ceres orbit in early 2015.

What does Ceres consist of?

Ceres consists of water frost and different hydrated minerals like carbonates and clays. Ceres was discovered by Guiseppe Piazza on January 1, 1801. Ceres may contain an ocean of liqiud water underneath its surface which makes it a potential target in the search for extraterrestrial life (life which doesn't originate from earth). Ceres appears to be differentiated into a rocky core and ice mantle.

Does Ceres have an atmosphere?

No one knows for sure, but most scientists believe Ceres barely has an atmosphere, if any. It has to be taken into consideration that Ceres only has about 4% of the gravity of Earth, so it must be very hard to keep an atmosphere.

Does planet Ceres have seasons?

No it does not because its axial tilt is only 3%.I was just learning this in science or otherwise I woud not have known about this. So no Ceres does not have seasons!

Is Ceres habitable?

Well you couldn't live there without a space suit or air-tight building, why?

  • A very weak, or no, atmsophere (probably out of water vapor)
  • No known magnetic field
  • Very low gravity (about 3% of Earth's)
  • Too cold

Though there are advantages

  • More fresh water found in the water-ice layer of Ceres than in all of Earth's lakes, river, and ice caps.
  • Most massive object in the asteroid belt, so higher gravity (but still low compared to Earth)
  • Though we couldn't stand on the surface without a pressurized helmet, alien life is never out of the question...
