A global ocean lies beneath the icy
crust of Saturn’s geologically active
moon Enceladus, according to new
research using data from NASA’s
Cassini mission.
Researchers found the magnitude of
the moon’s very slight wobble, as it
orbits Saturn, can only be accounted
for if its outer ice shell is not frozen
solid to its interior, meaning a global
ocean must be present.
The finding implies the fine spray of
water vapor, icy particles and simple
organic molecules Cassini has
observed coming from fractures near
the moon’s south pole is being fed by
this vast liquid water reservoir. The
research is presented in a paper
published online this week in the
journal Icarus.
