Saturn’s Moon Enceladus Has a Global Ocean

NASA JPL September 15, 2015 A global ocean lies beneath the icy crust of Saturn’s geologically active moon Enceladus, according to new research using data from NASA’s Cassini mission. Researchers found the magnitude of the moon’s very slight wobble, as it orbits Saturn, can only be accounted for if its outer ice shell is not frozen solid to its interior, ... Read More »

Saturn’s Moon Enceladus Has Seafloor Hydrothermal Activity

ESA March 11, 2015 Tiny grains of rock detected by the international Cassini spacecraft orbiting Saturn point to hydrothermal activity on the seafloor of its icy moon Enceladus. The finding adds to the tantalising possibility that the moon could contain environments suitable for living organisms. Understanding the interior structure of 500 km-diameter Enceladus has been a top priority of the ... Read More »

Ocean Detected on Saturn’s Moon Enceladus

NASA JPL April 03, 2014 NASA’s Cassini spacecraft and Deep Space Network have uncovered evidence Saturn’s moon Enceladus harbors a large underground ocean of liquid water, furthering scientific interest in the moon as a potential home to extraterrestrial microbes. Researchers theorized the presence of an interior reservoir of water in 2005 when Cassini discovered water vapor and ice spewing from ... Read More »
