It all started when Venus' atmosphere began to go greenhouse. Many of the humans escaped to the next planet. They called it Earth. But one of the spacecraft missed Earth and traveled for many many years, finally arriving at the Saturn system and crashing on Enceladus. The survivors burrowed beneath the surface and began to send out a distress signal. They knew the other humans would be drawn it when their explorations took them to Saturn because it adhered to the three tenets of the ancient Venusian code; "Follow the Water. Don't be fooled by fluorocarbons. (And don't you eat that yellow snow!)"

Well, we have a very good working hypothesis for the color dichotomy on this extrordinary little moon. how is the hypothesis on the equatorial mountain range formation holding up?

But, but.....where's the Obilisk? Ha, Ha. BTW; SciFi fans, I've just started a short fiction piece where, instead of a Star Gate on Iapetus, we find a Starship burried under the Ice of Enceladus - one whose Total Anihilation Power Supply is so hot (even on 'idle') that is causing the Geysers.
Sir Clark would smile!
