Science Motivations for the Future Exploration of Ceres

We lay out the science motivations for exploring dwarf planet Ceres, a newly recognized ocean world, under the New Frontiers program in the next decade, either via multi-site exploration or a sample return from recently exposed evaporites. This mission will advance our knowledge of ocean worlds and of the origin of Earth’s volatiles.
