Ceres and The Asteroid Belt

Ceres  is the largest object in the asteroid belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.

A dwarf planet, 945 kilometers in diameter, it’s the largest of the minor planets and the 33rd-largest known body in the Solar System, and composes about one third of the mass of the asteroid belt.

Identified by Giuseppe Piazzi, in 1801, it was originally considered a planet, but was reclassified as an asteroid in the 1850s.

Ceres has an internal ocean of liquid water under the layer of ice.

This was made for Solar Gods Challenge Extended!, hosted by  ManipulateThis

:iconmanipulatethis:

Theme: This is a Design Challenge. Select A Roman God Or Goddess From Mythology And Place Them Into Space With The Planet That Is Named After Them.

You Must Have The Planet (In Correct Size) With Its Corresponding God Model.

Put Additional Planets, Moons, the Sun, etc., In Their Proper Places In Space.

Skill Level: Level 2

Due Date: February 5th, 2017

--------------------------------

Nota Bene:

Just FYI, the Moderator didn’t accept this, r my other attempts, Ceres and Her Sisters or Ceres and The Asteroid Belt [2], saying that there were too many captions, and neither Dwarf Planets or Proto-Planets met the criteria.

Although, the guidelines said,This is a Design Challenge”; and, in About: Design, Scene, And Elements and Principles, it says “a Design… may... contain words, symbols, etc.”

It’s nice to think that someday we’ll be out there among the stars.

Guess we’ll find out when we get there.

Was Our Asteroid Belt Once A Planet?

(Maybe, Ceres has water, from tears, mourning because she remembers when she was a almost planet.

Spoilers: The theory that The Asteroid Belt was more than a proto-planet is no longer current.
But, who knows, maybe it will come back into fashion, again.)

Notes:

[1] Ceres (Dwarf Planet) is the largest object in the asteroid belt  between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.

Its diameter is approximately 945 kilometers (587 miles),[6] making it the largest of the minor planets within the orbit of Neptune.

It’s the 33rd-largest known body in the Solar System.

Ceres comprises about 1/3rd of the mass of the entire asteroid belt.

[2] Ceres is named for Ceres, the Roman goddess of agriculture.

It was called Hera for a short time in Germany.[48] 

In Greece, it is called Demeter, after the Greek equivalent of the Roman Cerēs.

In English, it’s called 1108 Demeter.

The old astronomical symbol of Ceres is a sickle, or reversed for the letter ‘C’.

[3] Vesta, with the minor-planet designation 4 Vesta, is one of the largest objects in the asteroid belt, with a diameter of 525 kilometres.

 It was identified by Heinrich Wilhelm Olbers in 1807 and is named after Vesta, the virgin goddess of home and hearth from Roman mythology.

Vesta is the second-most-massive and second-largest body in the asteroid belt after the dwarf planet Ceres; and comprises an estimated 9% of the mass of the asteroid belt.

[4] Pallas is the second asteroid to have been discovered (after Ceres), and it is one of the largest asteroids in the Solar System.

It comprises an estimated 7% of the mass of the asteroid belt

It is 512 kilometers in diameter, somewhat smaller than Vesta.

It is likely a remnant protoplanet.

It was named for Pallas (daughter of Triton), who was raised with Athena, as a foster sister. During a friendly fight between the two goddesses, Pallas was mortally wounded. From remorse, Athena created the palladium, a statue in her likeness.

[5] Hygiea is the fourth-largest asteroid in the Solar System, located in the asteroid belt. With somewhat oblong diameters of 350–500 kilometres and a mass estimated to be 2.9% of the total mass of the belt.

 It was named for Hygieia, the Greek goddess of health, daughter of Asclepius (Aesculapius for the Romans).

Memo:

This was interesting. There’s so much water in the solar system. It was so interesting, I took a lot of time, with it. Although, in astronomical terms,no time, at all.

It’s impossible to conceive of things that have existed and changed so dramatically over billions of years; or, millions of human lifetimes, though humanoids are only known to have existed an infinitesimal fraction of that time.

Great job! thank you for using my stock :) x

Thanks. It doesn't meet the criteria, apparently; but, it was interesting to do. :nod:

Thanks. :thanks:

It's certainly an interesting theme with the Duality Of The World. Contest., at the new group Art-Revival.

Undeniably, we're in the best of times (for some) and the worst of times (for the rest of us).  :shudder:

Wow! You really did your homework on the solar system. Great work :clap:
Good luck with contest :hug:

Thanks. It was so interesting, I got a little carried.
