NASA finds evidence of “Fresh Ice” on Saturn’s Moon Enceladus

Scientists have found evidence that northern hemisphere of Saturn’s moon Enceladus has been resurfaced with ice from its interior.

Enceladus shoots out enormous plumes of ice grains and vapour from an ocean that lies under its crust. A global spectral map of Enceladus showed infrared signals that correlate with the geologic activity which is easily seen at the south pole

According to Phy.org, Scientists used data gathered by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft during 13 years of exploring the Saturn system to make detailed images of the icy moon and to reveal geologic activity.

Cassini’s Visible and Infrared Mapping Spectrometer (VIMS) collected light reflected off Saturn, its rings, and its 10 major icy moons, light that is visible to humans as well as infrared light
