    Water on Ceres:

    Largest asteroid has water


    It looks like water was found on the dwarf planet/asteroid Ceres.

    Water seems to be more common in the solar system than was previously thought. They seem to be finding it everywhere. Granted, they don't seem to be stating anything about liquid water here.

    There seems to be a lot of water out in space which seems like a very good thing for bootstrap space exploration. Where did it come from? Lots of sources probably, but this article talks about young stars shedding water directly into interstellar space, creating it at the same flow rate as the Amazon river.
