The Geysers of Saturn's Enceladus — New NASA Images

Despite the small size of Enceladus (300 miles to be precise), it is one of the few places on the universe with water. The spacecraft collected the pictures during a daring flyby of the Saturn's moon. The spacecraft will send back more images, as well as the analyses of the plumes, done using Cassini's onboard gas analyzer and dust detector. It was the last chance for Cassini to carry out the flyby and sample Enceladus' plumes.
