NASA’s Cassini space probe flew by the Saturn moon Enceladus and sent back some pretty cool images. Enceladus is one of Saturn’s 61 moons — 23 if you count only those that have regular orbits — and is pretty interesting. It is the sixth largest moon of Saturn, and its fissured, ice-covered surface spews vast plumes of water vapor into space. The NASA website has some interesting pictures.
Enceladus, for those who don’t have an encyclopedic recollection of Greek mythology, was one of the Giants who was defeated by the Olympian Gods.
