So there've been studies on Ceres (the dwarf planet in the asteroid belt) and evidence shows that there's hydrogen and solid water on the planet in craters. What do you think of this?

It's not at all surprising, to be honest. Hydrogen is the single most abundant element in the universe, and frozen water is far more common than most people seem to believe. What we really want to look for in celestial bodies with frozen water is evidence of it having ever been in liquid form. Liquid water is the basis for life as we know it on this planet, so that's what we look for on other planets to gauge the possibility of there being life there. Of course, we're gradually becoming more open to the possibility of life existing in substances we're not used to seeing it in. That's why scientists in related fields are very interested in Titan, one moon of Saturn, which has a climate, including wind and rain, which produces rivers, lakes, and seas that are likely composed of liquid methane. We're also very interested in the Jovian moons Ganymede and Io, which are very likely to have vast subsurface oceans of liquid water, and thus are quite likely to harbor life of some form we'd recognize.

Like Gray, I am not at all surprised that Ceres would have ice on its surface. Other than the moons Gray mentioned, "Enceladus" is a great candidate to harbor life, as scientists say that molecular hydrogen is abundant there. If Ceres is like that at all, then I am glad to find more life that is much more closer to home ;P

It's plausible that it does have some form of life like bacteria or other micro organisms. But we can't know for sure with the tech humans have now.
