Saturn and Its Crazy Moons

First Mimas the Death Star, and now we find Enceladus is just a crazy, with half of it pock-marked and clearly old as old and the other half spurting out hot water, all in a moon apparently too small to have a hot centre. The boffins will be thinking that one over again, then...

Isn't it pretty though!

Close up of the Saturnian ski-resort:

Rather nice zoom-in movie here (of course the little alien skiers aren't visible to the naked eye...)
