      Enceladus Plume is a New Kind of Plasma Laboratory Recent findings from NASA’s Cassini mission reveal that Saturn’s geyser moon Enceladus provides a special laboratory for watching unusual behavior of plasma. In these recent findings, some Cassini scientists think they have observed “dusty plasma,” a condition theorized but not previously observed on site, near Enceladus.

      Water jets on Saturn's moon, Enceladus. - A small, icy moon that orbits Saturn probably has an underground saltwater ocean, according to scientists who have found sodium in tiny ice grains that have spewed out of the moon and into Saturn's outermost ring.

      I want this in a picture frame on my wall!Enceladus Jets: The icy surface of Saturn's moon Enceladus spurts ice particles, water vapor, and trace organic molecules into space. Intriguing to astrobiologists, Enceladus could be one of the best places to look for evidence of life in our Solar System.
