Halloween 2008 - Enceladus' Shocking Turn
[For trouble viewing the images/movies on this page, go here]
In a shocking turn of events, and unreleased until now, Cassini's last flyby revealed that blood-red rivers of organic matter have recently begun to ooze from Enceladus' famed tiger stripes. Implications of this dramatic finding for the presence of subterranean fluids are being vigorously evaluated.

(Happy Halloween!... from all of us at CICLOPS.)
