Hubble Maps of Pluto Show Surface Changes

NASA's Curiosity Mars rover has caught the first image of asteroids taken from the surface of Mars. The image includes two asteroids, Ceres and Vesta. This version includes Mars' moon Deimos.

Dwarf Planet Ceres, Artist's Impression

A pair of small moons photographed by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope discovered orbiting Pluto in 2005 now have official names: Nix and Hydra.

Water Detection on Ceres

This is a NASA Hubble Space Telescope color image of dwarf planet Ceres, the largest object in the asteroid belt. The contrast has been enhanced to reveal surface details.

Color View of Ceres

This is the clearest view yet of the distant planet Pluto and its moon, Charon, as revealed by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. The image was taken by the European Space Agency's Faint Object Camera on February 21, 1994.

Hubble Portrait of the "Double Planet" Pluto & Charon

This artist's concept shows the planet catalogued as 2003UB313 at the lonely outer fringes of our solar system. Our Sun can be seen in the distance. The new planet is at least as big as Pluto and about three times farther away from the Sun than Pluto.

Newest Member of Our Solar System (Artist's Concept)

This artist's concept shows NASA's Dawn spacecraft heading toward the dwarf planet Ceres. When Dawn arrives, it will be the first spacecraft to go into orbit around two destinations in our solar system beyond Earth.

On the Way to Ceres (Artist Concept)

These time-lapse images of a newfound dwarf planet in our solar system, formerly known as 2003 UB313 (or Xena), and now called Eris, were taken using the Samuel Oschin Telescope at the Palomar Observatory.

Tenth Planet Discovered

This graphic shows the planned trek of NASA's Dawn spacecraft from its launch in 2007 through its arrival at the dwarf planet Ceres in early 2015.

Journey to Ceres

NASA's Dawn spacecraft will be getting an up-close look at the dwarf planet Ceres starting in late March or the beginning of April 2015. This graphic shows the science-gathering orbits planned for the spacecraft.

Closing in on Ceres

The never-before-seen surface of the distant planet Pluto is resolved in these NASA Hubble Space Telescope pictures, taken with the European Space Agency's Faint Object Camera (FOC) aboard Hubble.

The Surface of Pluto

This image-based surface map of Pluto was assembled by computer image processing software from four separate images of Pluto's disk taken with the European Space Agency's Faint Object Camera aboard NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.
