The ice fountains of Enceladus Fountains of water ice blast thousands of kilometres above the surface of Saturn's tiny moon Enceladus. It is thought that the pull of Saturn's powerful gravity distorts the moon and heats the interior, forming an undergrou
If the icy surface of Pluto's giant moon Charon is cracked, analysis of the fractures could reveal if its interior was warm, perhaps warm enough to have maintained a subterranean ocean of liquid water, according to a new NASA-funded study.

In 2005 the Cassini spacecraft discovered hydrothermal vents on the surface of Enceladus that spew water vapor and ice particles into space. The eruptions of water and ice appear to be continuous and they supply material that contribute to the massive rings around gas-giant Saturn. Recently in…
