Sensational Sights from Saturn - Mar 22, 2006
 New raw images from Cassini have captured breathtaking views of Saturn's splendid moons and rings, including distant shots of Enceladus and its icy plumes.


 
Enceladus! - Mar 9, 2006
 A masterpiece of deep time and wrenching gravity, the tortured surface of Enceladus and its ongoing geologic activity tell the story of the ancient and present struggles of one small world ... a world which, today, appears to have bodies of liquid water rich in simple organics beneath its south pole. This surprising story is recounted by imaging scientists in a paper to be published in the journal Science on March 10, 2006.


 
The Fountains of Enceladus - Dec 6, 2005
 One of the most thrilling moments thus far for Cassini imaging scientists was the recent return of images and [link {1714}]time-lapse sequences[/link] showing spectacular visual evidence of fountain-like jets emanating from the south polar region of Enceladus and a gigantic plume towering above the small icy moon.


 
The Fountains of Enceladus - Nov 28, 2005
 In a wonderful start to the Holiday season, Cassini imaging scientists are delighted by recent sightings of fountain-like plumes towering above Saturn's moon Enceladus. A fine spray of small, icy particles, emanating from the warm, geologically unique province surrounding the south pole of Enceladus and believed now to supply the material comprising Saturn's E ring, was first observed in images taken back on Jan. 16, 2005. Images of a crescent Enceladus returned by Cassini this past weekend show multiple plumes in striking detail. Stay tuned for future announcements on the sightings of the Enceladus plumes.


 
Cassini's Brush with Enceladus - Aug 30, 2005
 At a press briefing today, coincident with the Cassini Project Science Group (PSG) meeting in London, scientists discussed the unusual south polar terrains of Enceladus, and announced new evidence that the icy moon's tenuous atmosphere may be the result of venting from ground fractures close to the moon’s south pole.


 
Enceladus at Close Range - Jul 29, 2005
 During the very close flyby of Enceladus two weeks ago, multiple Cassini instruments, working simultaneously, made the remarkable discovery that heat and water vapor are escaping from the interior along the prominent “tiger stripe” fractures near the moon’s south pole.


 
Enceladus 'E04' Flyby Images - Mar 24, 2005
 Cassini's closest flyby of the Saturnian moon, Enceladus, has yielded the finest details yet on the surface of this strange and wrinkled orb.


 
Enceladus 'E3' Flyby - Feb 18, 2005
 Dramatic images of the surface of Saturn's brightest, whitest moon, Enceladus, show a body that has undergone extensive re-surfacing through a variety of geological processes.

do the jets affect Enceladus' orbital motion?

That part of Enceladus is much more interesting than I expected. This image is very fascinating showing a lot of tectonic features.

A fascinating view. This could be the view a manned spacecraft flying to Enceladus may have in a science fiction movie.

fascinating view. looking closely I see on enceladus terminator line, a bright speck. The peak of a meteor impact perhaps

i get a notion of the scale of what a "Full Saturn" must look like from the night sky of Dione, Mimas or Enceladus from this image.

Dear Cassini team, first of all, sorry for my bad English. I have 4 questions about Saturn's ring: 1. How old is Saturn's ring? we know that it is formed probably 4 billion years ago, the same time as Saturn's formation, but the ring as we know now (the flat one), when does it formed? 2. Is Saturn's ring relatively stable (shepherd moons help stabilizing it?) or still actively changing and unpredictable? 3. Is it correct to say that Saturn's ring is the nebula for the formation of the Saturnian moons (Mimas, Enceladus)? Couple of months ago, a lump of thick material was observed in the edge of the ring. Where is that lump now? Is it still exist? 4. Among scientists and astronomers, which theory is the most favored about the ring formation? Is it from Saturn's nebula or from a destroyed Moon. Many thanks for the beautiful updates!
