DoLMJ, thanks for the info. it seams this is a case of equilibrium. i had thought enough particls in the E ring would be lost to solar wind as well as disassociated and or ionized by solar radiation to be swept away by magnetic forces. Enough particle loss that it would leave less mass to fall back on Enceladus than is ejected. this system is more stable than i thought.

NeKto, ijusth: I found the answer on the Cassini Mission main page. When I searched on this page for 'E ring' I got many results, the interesting one is the 3rd one of 'News' :Home > News & Features > Cassini Science League > 'How a Celestial Snowblower Runs a Ring Around Saturn'. ( Published on March 23, 2010 ) ( Type E ring followed by the enter key into the search window even if the page may indicate 'no results found' before pressing the enter key. ) The particles of Enceladus' jets are falling on Enc or making it into the E ring. Those ones in the E ring are falling back on Enc within one or two orbits or falling back on Enc after a much longer stay in the ring, but estimated not to be for more than 400 years. Some very few make it from the E ring into the magnetosphere. But material from impact cratering in the present on Enceladus is more than the particles lost to the magnetosphere I think. Thus Enceladus doesn't shrink. Enceladus is getting also material from micrometeorites. (Even if scientists say that Tethys is brighter than Dione because it's getting material from the E ring, too, I think that the material from impacts and from micrometeorites on Enc is enough that Enceladus doesn't shrink although giving some material to Tethys. ) NeKto: This question has been answered by carolyn in 2009 already, the jets produce a thrust that is only miniscule.

ijusth; i asked the same question about change in mass in March. no answers yet. on the question of where any shrinking might end, as i understand it, the gravitational friction that is the best hypothesis for providing the heat that powers the jets would become inefective in a much smaller body. Thus, if Enceladus is shrinking, the venting should stop from lack of heat long before Enceladus gets small enough to break up.

In this view there are a lot of interesting hill ranges between the middle and the left at the terminator. At the upper right there is older, cratered terrain, but also showing that Enceladus modified those craters. The younger terrain has got a sharp transition at the upper right to the older terrain which is remarkable.

But seriously folks; do the jets produce enough thrust to measurably move the orbit of Enceladus? p.s. Red dragon is quite correct about the image!

I hope so too. Either way, it's a spectacular image, being able to see so much detail on the surface of Enceladus is just amazing.

It's almost like a cosmic ballet dance between these two small ringmoons. Fantastic images. Hope to see more of these two moons in the future.
