biocanvas Global map of Dione

WHAT’S THAT?
A global composite map of Dione, Saturn’s fourth largest moon. The leading hemisphere is light in color, coated in ice dust from Saturn’s E-ring. The E-ring is formed from debris from over 100 ice volcanoes at the southern pole of Enceladus, another of Saturn’s moons. Together, these geyser-like jets expel over 440 lbs of water-rich material per second, which either falls back to Enceladus’s surface as snow or escapes into space, forming the E-ring and dusting other moons with ice crystals.

WHAT’S THE LATEST?
This map was one of the first global color maps composited from images taken by NASA’s unmanned Cassini orbiter. Although the Cassini mission was only scheduled to last four years, the orbiter has survived over ten years and has sent back hundreds of gigabytes (and counting!) of scientific data, fueling over 3,000 scientific reports and contributing to major discoveries about our solar system.

solargravity A 3D graphic matte painting I created of Enceladus ( the sixth-largest moon of Saturn). I created this for an upcoming project that I have been working on. The original image show more detail and I will share more as I develop the scenes.
Let me know what you think.

ABOUT THE ART #SamsungGalaxy #S4 #GalaxyS4
A masterpiece of deep time and wrenching gravity, the tortured surface of #Saturn #moon #Enceladus and its fascinating ongoing #geologic activity tell the story of the #ancient and present struggles of one tiny world. This is a story that is recounted by imaging #scientists in a paper published in the journal #Science on March 10, 2006.
The enhanced color view of Enceladus seen here is largely of the southern #hemisphere and includes the south #polar terrain at the bottom of the image.
Ancient #craters remain somewhat pristine in some locales, but have clearly relaxed in others. Northward-trending fractures, likely caused by a change in the moon's rate of rotation and the consequent flattening of the moon's shape, rip across the southern hemisphere. The south polar terrain is marked by a striking set of `blue' fractures and encircled by a conspicuous and continuous chain of folds and ridges, testament to the forces within Enceladus that have yet to be silenced.
The mosaic was created from 21 false-color frames taken during the #Cassini #spacecraft' close approaches to Enceladus on March 9 and July 14, 2005. Images taken using filters sensitive to #ultraviolet visible and #infrared light (spanning #wavelengths from 338 to 930 nanometers) were combined to create the individual frames #iPhone

  •   astro_photography_ Do underground oceans vent through the tiger stripes on Saturn's moon Enceladus? Long features dubbed tiger stripes are known to be spewing ice from the moon's icy interior into space, creating a cloud of fine ice particles over the moon's South Pole and creating Saturn's mysterious E-ring. Evidence for this has come from the robot Cassini spacecraft now orbiting Saturn. Pictured above, a high resolution image of Enceladus is shown from a close flyby. 1w

تصویر زیبایی از دو قمر زحل؛ انسلادوس با سطحی درخشان در مرکز تصویر قرار دارد در حالیکه تیتان از فاصله ای دورتر و از پشت حلقه های سیاره مادر نمایان است. این تصویر توسط فضاپیمای کاسینی در تاریخ ۱۲ مارس ۲۰۱۲ و از فاصله یک میلیون کیلومتری از سطح انسلادوس گرفته شده است.

sagittarius__a Breaking Pre-#HumpdaySpaceMessage #News: "I am finally free to shout this one out loud.....
Yesterday a team of us #scientists and engineers submitted a proposal to #NASA's #Discovery program. The goal: To conduct a mission back to the #Saturn system and search for life within its small icy moon, #Enceladus! Since all details concerning the mission are still embargoed, and will be until we are selected ... if we are selected ... I am not free to divulge how we intend to go about this search. But I can say that we will be doing what #Cassini cannot, and may in fact be employing diagnostic techniques never used anywhere before in the exploration of the #solarsystem.
I thrill at the thought of it." -#CarolynPorco

How very fucking thrilling, indeed! I am wishing on every single #star in the #galaxy for this proposal to come to fruition. (And that's billions upon billions of wishes, you know.)
