2015 is a momentous year for the study of dwarf planets - the Dawn mission arrives at Ceres in the asteroid belt in February, and the New Horizons spaceprobe will commence its flypast of Pluto and its moons in July. We shall discuss the smaller bodies of the Solar System - from dwarf planets to asteroids.
