It looks like a damned mess to me--colossal, ragged-edged wounds in the, um, earth, like something our frackin frackers would do here.
Scientists are very puzzled. These big bright spots are apparently NOT the same as the fuzzier ones that Hubble caught. i gather that those have "disappeared" and something new has happened. But what? Ice? Yeah, but THAT bright? Ice thrown up from below a dusty surface by a meteor impact or other disturbance? That's a guess. Nobody knows.
I've been following the exploration of our Solar System since humans walked on the Moon. What strikes me is the awesome variety of objects and terrains, and the discovery of water almost everywhere--and especially the discoveries of the last couple of decades, so much variety, different kinds of moons everywhere, different kinds of rings. I'm also really blown away by the number of exoplanets in our galaxy--over a thousand detected, and billions estimated! I am so proud that the Nixons and Reagans and Bushes of this world--the visionless, vicious tools of the 0.01%--have been defeated on at least this one matter, space exploration--defeated by the cleverness and determination of NASA and other scientists, and by the heartfelt curiosity of most humans. These retro-fascists hated the space program, and turned all of our resources toward war and greed. Somehow, NASA survived them. Somehow, we are looking at the most incredible era of astronomical discoveries that has ever occurred.
Now we are looking at Ceres, and are once again baffled by what we see--something unexpected, mysterious, exciting, as with each of the moons of Jupiter and Saturn (staggeringly unexpected and improbable objects). Thank you, NASA and NASA supporters!
