    What's the small Saturn moon they believe has volcanoes and liquid water?

    Not Titan, it's a very small one. Begins with an E, I think. Did they ever confirm liquid water there?

    [​IMG] Io = volcanoes.

    [​IMG] Europa = ocean under icy crust and a favorite hope for life within.

    Both orbit Jupiter.

    Yes, Enceladus, that's it!

    Did they confirm the water-spewing volcanoes?

    Description

    It's a composite from New Horizons, Io with an eruption.It says that some of the biggest eruptions can be 250 km high. Io is about 2,200 miles in diamater so just eyeballing this one lokks about the same height, a bit above 100 miles.

    Wow it looks so surreal. Almost as if it's CGI.

    Imagine seeing Jupter or Saturn from space and being right beside it. That is one scary big planet.

    Some bizarre ads on that page:
    "The true Jesus Christ
    Astrophotography Cameras
    Single Estonian Ladies
    Science discovers God?"

    Sorry to digress.

    For me they were hot pics of Big Bang Theory Kaley Cuoco, a snoring cure, and Michigan auto insurance tricks.

    Some weird hybrid between a Quasar and a Black Hole has been discovered, reported/published the Royal Astronomical Society

    It's an incredibly bright Quasar... that somehow gets all of its light, and is powered by, a super-massive Black Hole at its core
