zachjhatcher Enceladus, Saturn's sixth largest moon, has a diameter of 500 kilometers, making it only a tenth of the size of Titan, the largest moon of the Saturn system. Enceladus's orbit is situated within the densest part of Saturn's E Ring, the second outermost ring, which implies a connection between the two. In 2005, Cassini discovered the source of the E Ring's materiel: cryovolcanic plumes of water vapor, sodium chloride crystals, ice particles, and other volatiles venting from the south polar region of Enceladus. Some of this material falls back to the surface as snow, while the rest escapes to space only to join the material of Saturn's rings. To date, over 100 such geysers have been identified in the region. Cassini has also provided strong evidence for the existence of a subsurface ocean of liquid water beneath the south polar ice, as well as the presence of nutrients, organic molecules, and of course an energy source. These conditions put Enceladus at the forefront for the search for extra-terrestrial life in the solar system.

ohstarstuff The photos Cassini has been sending back go beyond science. They are art. In this image, Titan can be seen behind Saturn's rings with Enceladus peaking onto the crescent. The bright surrounding ring is atmospheric haze above Titan, gas that is scattering sunlight to a camera operating onboard the robotic Cassini spacecraft. Since the image was taken pointing nearly at the Sun, the surfaces of Titan and Enceladus appear in silhouette, and the rings of Saturn appear similar to a photographic negative.

  •   whired 檢視今年初拍完後放了七個月才拿去沖洗的照片發現當時竟然在同樣的地點拍過了同樣的物件然後早已忘記但第一張的效果遠不及六個多月重新經過相同地點時用手機拍下的這張,有點搞不懂自己到底是有沒有長進或是精準有提升了那麼一些。 2mon

rvelution Shadows and Plumes Across Enceladus — "Why does Enceladus have ice plumes? The discovery of jets spewing water vapor and ice was detected by the Saturn-orbiting Cassini spacecraft in 2005. The origin of the water feeding the jets, however, remained a topic of research. A leading hypothesis held that the source might originate from a deep underground sea, but another hypothesis indicated that it might just be ice melted off walls of deep rifts by the moon's tidal flexing and heating. Pictured above, the textured surface of Enceladus is visible in the foreground, while rows of plumes rise from ice fractures in the distance. These jets are made more visible by the Sun angle and the encroaching shadow of night. Recent study of over a hundred images like this -- of geysers crossing Enceladus' South Pole, together with regional heat maps, indicate that these plumes likely originate from a hidden sea, increasing the chance that this frosty globe might be harboring life."
