Rhea's average surface temperature is so low, approx minus 180 Celsius, that Rhea can hold onto an exosphere. It is not really an atmosphere per se as it is far too tenuous, approx one in five trillionth of the Earth's atmospheric pressure at sea level. However it is a concentration of Oxygen, I guess Atomic Oxygen rather than molecular Oxygen (O2) or Ozone (O3) & CO2. However the pressure of this exosphere is lower than a good laboratory vacuum. I expect the oxygen is liberated from the ice by irradiation from Saturn's magnetosphere ( I suspect Rhea may also be emitting Hydrogen) & the CO2 may be from outgassing & /o or irradiation. With Rhea it is not obvious as so far the surface appears to lack geological features other than a few faults. Unlike Dione & Enceladus, which certainly show 'recent' geological activity & in the case of Enceladus is certainly ongoing, Rhea appears to have had nothing happen other than get hit. Images particularly from Voyager 1 & Cassini show craters upon craters & gravity data suggest an undifferentiated interior. Further work will have to be done to examine the data & see whether or not possible sources on the surface of the large icy moon can be found. Also it has been suggested that the Uranus moons Titania & Oberon could have exospheres too, as they are both more massive than Rhea & Titania is slightly larger (Oberon is slightly smaller but is denser than Rhea). Unlike Rhea, both Titania & Oberon clearly show signs of having geological activity in the past from Voyager 2 imagery. Andrew Brown.

The Cassini spacecraft resumed normal operations on Nov. 24, as planned ! Then, there will be a Hyperion flyby at 44 500 miles approx. on 11/28 and a very important Enceladus flyby on 11/30 at only 50 km/31 miles.

According to Cassini's web page, if everything goes fine she should be ready again just in time for the next Enceladus flyby -day 30 (tuesday, by the way) of this month-

WoW... except for the lack of a "superlaser" crater, looks as if someone had painted of white the Death Star and we were seeing it from above or below. It's a pity all jets are on Enceladus' south pole and there're no jets in other zones of the moon; a cryovolcanic version of Io would be quite a sight.
