Enceladus: A Tectonic Feast Credit: NASA/JPL/Space Science Institute NASA's Cassini spacecraft has been studying Saturn and its moons since it entered orbit in 2004. This image, taken on Oct. 5, 2008, is a stunning mosaic of the geologically active Enceladus after a Cassini flyby.

Enceladus Jets: The icy surface of Saturn's moon Enceladus spurts ice particles, water vapor, and trace organic molecules into space. Intriguing to astrobiologists.

An Incredible View of Saturn that Could Only Be Seen by a Visiting Spacecraft

Geysers of water ice erupt from Saturn's moon Enceladus, the plumes are backlit by the sun while moon’s dark side is illuminated by reflected light from Saturn. The Cassini spacecraft flew right through the plumes to let its instruments 'taste' them.

Backlit Saturn - Seen from the Cassini SpacecraftThe Cassini spacecraft was sent by NASA and ESA to study Saturn and its moons. Two of Saturn’s moons, Enceladus and Tethys, appear in the bottom right of this image. So far, the spacecraft has found new storm systems on Saturn, active geysers on its moon Enceladus, liquid oceans on its moon Titan, and many other unexpected discoveries. Due to its elliptical orbit, Cassini is occasionally able to catch beautyful images of saturn backlit by our sun, as seen above. Credit: NASA/JPL/ESA

The Cassini Spacecraft has been busy! It recently discovered 101 geysers on Saturn's icy moon Enceladus.
