Cassini Sees Heat Below the Icy Surface of Enceladus – NASA Solar System Exploration

A new study in the journal Nature Astronomy reports that the south polar region of Saturn's icy moon Enceladus is warmer than expected just a few feet below its icy surface.

This near-infrared, color mosaic from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, captured Aug. shows the sun glinting off of the north polar seas of Saturn’s moon Titan.
