Anomalies in the distribution of hydrogen at Occator crater on the dwarf planet Ceres reveal an icy crust, says a new paper led by Tom Prettyman, a Senior Scientist at the Planetary Science Institute.

The study focused on Occator crater (left), which contains Ceres’ most prominent bright spots.

The newly reported map (right) reveals higher concentrations of hydrogen than expected if the near sub-surface within Occator crater and its ejecta blanket was ice free.

Results indicate that the crustal materials excavated by the crater-forming impact were rich in water ice.

More than 300 bright spots have been located on the surface of Ceres.

Scientists with NASA's Dawn mission say the bright material indicates the dwarf planet is an active, evolving world.
