The mysterious icy jets erupting from Saturn's moon Enceladus--discovered by NASA's Cassini spacecraft in 2005--may have their roots in a bubbly "Perrier ocean" flowing beneath the moon's frozen surface, a new study finds.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft has moved on to the next stage of its Saturn mission, which will allow scientists to study seasons and other long-term weather phenomena on the ringed planet and its moons.
A NASA spacecraft got a great look at Titan yesterday, probing the atmosphere of Saturn's largest moon to see how it changes as the seasons turn.
