I didn’t realize that there was this much ice on Ceres – 100 km thick! And with an escape velocity of 0.52 km/s (1,160 mph) you can ship it to just about anywhere in the solar system with minimal energy expenditure.

I favor using it to reduce the CO2 atmosphere of Venus, but Mars or Asteroid mining is fair game too.?

I preferred the information and visuals at http://www.gizmag.com/ceres-water-vapor-plumes-dawn-probe/30580/
