Fountains of water ice are blasted thousands of kilometres above the surface of Saturn's tiny moon Enceladus - Saturn's gravitational pull is responsible for these extraordinary hot geysers.

Enceladus Jets: The icy surface of Saturn's moon Enceladus spurts ice particles, water vapor, and trace organic molecules into space. Intriguing to astrobiologists.
