about

In Greek mythology, Enceladus was one of the Gigantes, the enormous children of Gaia (the Earth). Enceladus is the sixth-largest of the moons of Saturn and was discovered in 1789. Until the two Voyagers passed near it, little was known about this small moon besides the identification of water ice on its surface. Although the diameter of Enceladus is a mere 310 miles, it has a wide range of terrains ranging from old, heavily cratered surfaces to young, tectonically deformed terrain.

Like Europa, Enceladus appears to have liquid water under its icy surface. Cryovolcanoes at the south pole shoot large jets of water vapor, other volatiles, and some solid particles into space. Some of this water falls back onto the moon as snow, some of it is drawn to Saturn's rings, and some reaches Saturn. Analysis of the jets suggests that they originate from a subsurface body of water, which, along with the unique chemistry found in the plume, has marked Enceladus as one of the best places in the solar system to look for extraterrestrial life.
