Back on topic here.

 

Its good to know that life exists on other planets, but why do we care about it, if its just bacteria or micro organisms?

 

We get to say there is life outside our planet but that is all it really achieves.

 

Do we really think that finding bacteria on Ceres will help anything? 

Increase funding to find life - unlikely

Stop religions- unlikely

 

It seems like it is only for bragging rights for the country that does it first.

you are correct for our lifetime, but future generations could benefit. What if we could get a sample of a life form (bacteria) for example? Could we use it for a cure? New medicine?  Of course there are some too who would want to know what kind of new weapons we can make.
