Enceladus D.6.28

28 Jun

Enceladus is a very interesting moon. It is sort of white with blue tiger stripes and methane fountains. The blue sparkling blue methane going on up is backlit by the Sun.

These ices, even though you’re farther out, those ices deform and they melt at much lower temperatures than rock.

But still, even this far out in the Solar System, it allows volcanism and tectonics to occur with ices. And these are little bits on the Jovian gems of fire, like Io, and ice, like Enceladus.
