Scientists using mission data from NASA's Cassini spacecraft have identified 101 distinct geysers erupting on Saturn's icy moon Enceladus. Their analysis suggests it is possible for liquid water to reach from the moon's underground sea all the way to its surface.
Just in time for the holiday season, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has captured new images of Saturn and two of its moons – including Enceladus, a “white, glittering snowball of a moon.”
NASA has released a new image taken by its Cassini spacecraft that shows off features of Saturn with Earth in the background.
