NASA's Cassini spacecraft identifies 101 geysers on icy Saturn moon
NASA's Cassini spacecraft has identified 101 distinct geysers erupting on Saturn's icy moon Enceladus.
The researchers analyzed the mission data which suggests that it is possible for liquid water to reach from the moon's underground sea all the way to its surface
Cassini's cameras have been surveying the south polar terrain of the small moon for the last seven years and have found 101 geysers erupting from one of the tiger stripe fractures.
The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency.
