Infrared views of Saturn's Moon Enceladus

Infrared views of Saturn's Moon Enceladus
Infrared views of Saturn's Moon Enceladus These views of Saturn's moon Enceladus were created using infrared data collected by NASA's Cassini spacecraft during its 13-year mission at Saturn. The red regions correspond to warmer surface temperatures. The bottom-right image shows Enceladus' south pole, where subsurface ocean water vents into space. These warmer regions could indicate hotspots on the ocean floor, along with conditions favorable for life as we know it.
