Heat Below the Icy Surface of Enceladus: A new study in the journal Nature Astronomy reports that the south polar region of Saturn's icy moon Enceladus is warmer than expected just a few feet below its icy surface. This suggests that Enceladus' ocean of liquid water might be only a couple of miles beneath this region -- closer to the surface than previously thought.

The excess heat is especially pronounced over three fractures that are not unlike the "tiger stripes" -- prominent, actively venting fractures that slice across the pole -- except that they don't appear to be active at the moment. Seemingly dormant fractures lying above the moon's warm, underground sea point to the dynamic character of Enceladus' geology, suggesting the moon might have experienced several episodes of activity, in different places on its surface. "What is the warm underground ocean really like and could life have evolved there? These questions remain to be answered by future missions to this ocean world," said Cassini Project Scientist Linda Spilker at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California.

Saturn's sixth largest moon Enceladus. Today, NASA announced that the Cassini spacecraft discovered evidence of hydrothermal vents on the ocean floor of Enceladus. Underneath the layer of surface ice, a subterranean ocean circles the entire moon, and if there are hydrothermal vents at the bottom of that ocean, then it is possible that life exists there as well.

NASA, Satürn'ün uydusu Enceladus'da yüzey altı okyanusun içinde canlı yaşamını destekleyebilecek kilit bileşen olan hidrojen bulunduğunu açıkladı. #nasa #enceladus #dunyadisiyasam #saturn

So this just happened. #cassini photographed #Enceladus who's named after the opponent of Athena. Does that make him the opposite of love? Ask #brotherkwan - he was there. The features are called Y-shaped incongruities, that must mean something.

Saturn's moon #Enceladus has geysers shooting from beneath its icy surface, leading many to believe it holds a liquid #water ocean within. 🌕❄️🌊#space #searchforwater #searchforlife

Data collected by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft suggests that the conditions necessary to support life may be present on Saturn’s sixth largest moon, the icy world Enceladus. • #Enceladus #Space #Science #NASA #Cassini • Approaching Enceladus | 2015 | @NASA

#space leggings today in honor of the beginning of #cassini 's #grandfinale After 13 years in orbit, NASA has planned a series of 22 #orbits in between #Saturn and its rings before it crashes into it's atmosphere on September 15. We have learned so very much from this #spacecraft -one of the most important is the #possibility of life on one of Saturn's moons- Enceladus!! No spacecraft has ever been in the 1,500 mile gap between the rings and the planet. #nasa , filled with #kickass #geniuses will use the information Cassini obtains from these orbits to accurately determine the mass of Saturn's rings. It will also help us get a better picture of how the planets formed from rings of material around the sun. Not to mention the #amazing images we will get back!!! As gravity brings it closer to the planet it will continue to send back information from it's working instruments. The mass spectrometer will 'sniff' the atmosphere to determine its chemical compound. The spacecraft HAD to be purposefully crashed to prevent it from contaminating the #moon that may contain life! #Enceladus -Being crashed in this way allows NASA to gather as much data as they can for as long as they possibly can. #goNASA #💪🏻

Later today, @NASA's Cassini spacecraft will dive between Saturn's innermost ring, a first for any man-made object and the first of 22 weekly ring crossings for Cassini before making it's final fiery plunge into the planet's atmosphere on September 15th, 2017. Soon the Earth born materials that make up this emblem of science and human ingenuity will assimilate with the ringed gas giant, becoming part of the planet itself. From now until then I'll be highlighting some of the most important revelations we've received from the Cassini-Huygens mission. Stay tuned.

CASSINI'S GRAND FINALE
-
Berangkat dari bumi tahun 1997, tiba di saturnus 2004, cassini telah memberikan pengetahuan baru serta gambaran luar biasa tentang saturnus. mengkonfirmasi lautan methana di Titan, semburan air dari lautan bawah permukaan di Enceladus (bahkan mungkin adanya zat penyusun kehidupan disana), dan yang tak kalah spektakuler adalah pendaratan terjauh benda buatan manusia oleh Huygens probe di Permukaan Titan.
-
Kini, setelah tujuh tahun pengembaraan di tata surya dan tiga belas tahun menjelajahi saturnus beserta sistem bulannya, kini NASA memberikan misi pamungkas kepada cassini.
-
"Cassini's Grand Finale", dua puluh dua orbit mendekati saturnus hingga jarak terdekat yang belum pernah dilakukan sebelumnya. cassini akan terjun pada jarak yang sangat dekat diantara cincin dan permukaan saturnus.
-
Hingga 15 september 2017 nanti, pada orbit terkahir, dengan mempertahankan arah antenaya tetap mengarah ke bumi demi menyampaikan "salam perpisahan", cassini akan terjun ke saturnus, terbakar habis hingga cassini, pada akhirnya, akan menjadi bagian dari planet itu sendiri.

Goodbye Brave Robot! (sedikit terharu)

Setiap objek di Tata Surya memiliki keunikan tersendiri. Salah satu dari objek menarik tersebut adalah Enceladus, satelit alami planet Saturnus yang memancarkan geiser!

El quince de octubre de mil novecientos noventa y siete, la humanidad lanzó al espacio un aeronave no tripulada con la misión de llegar a Saturno. El viaje duró siete años. Siete años estuvo nuestra máquina viendo paisajes que yo sueño con ver algún día, cada día. Por fin llegó, y allí ha estado otros trece años conociendo a fondo el planeta de los anillos y sus muchísimas lunas, que se cuentan por decenas: Titán, Mimas, Jápeto, Tetis, Pandora, Jano, Fenrir... Y Encélado. Una de las grandes esperanzas de nuestra especie para encontrar vida. Al parecer este satélite, que obtiene su nombre de uno de los gigantes de cien brazos hijos del dios primordial Urano, podría estar cubierto al completo por un océano gigantesco tapado por una gruesa capa de hielo.

Hoy la sonda Cassini empieza su último viaje. Veinte años después se dispone a iniciar unas maniobras que la llevarán a su desintegración en la atmósfera de Saturno. El día escogido para el desenlace es el quince de septiembre. Tres mil quinientos millones de kilómetros a sus espaldas, un montón de información valiosísima enviada a la Tierra y el esfuerzo de innumerables científicos/as de diferentes países trabajando en equipo a lo largo de veinte años, hacen de esta misión una increíble gesta de la ciencia. ¿Qué habrá bajo el hielo de Encélado? Las gases expulsados por sus géiseres contienen compuestos que podrían favorecer la vida. Eso hace que me acuerde de Solaris, el planeta cubierto por un océano inteligente: si no lo habéis leído, lo tenéis en el catálogo de @editorial_impedimenta. Gracias a Cassini, hoy siento envidia de una máquina, y la ciencia y la ciencia-ficción se parecen un poco más.
