Postcard from Space (4)

Well with NASA's spacecrafts going places in our solar system, ever other day brings us the news of new discoveries.

According to NASA, the above image is of.....
Plumes of icy material extend above the southern polar region of Saturn's moon Enceladus as imaged by the Cassini spacecraft in February 2005. The monochrome view is presented along with a color-coded version on the right. The latter reveals a fainter and much more extended plume component.
Enceladus becomes the third planetary body outside of earth, known (for sure tht is) to have reserves of water.

Grt goin NASA!
