Captivating Water Plume on Saturn's Moon Enceladus
JWST reveals a Captivating Water Plume on Saturn's Moon Enceladus, Unlocking secrets of its Oceanic World.
NASA's Webb Telescope unveils Captivating Water Vapor Plume on Saturn's moon Enceladus, stretching over 6,000 miles.
Webb provides a First-Ever Direct view of how the Plume feeds the Water Supply for Saturn's System and Rings.
Enceladus, a Tiny Moon, Holds an Ocean and Geysers Spraying Ice particles, Water Vapor, and Organic Compounds.
Webb's Extraordinary Sensitivity Reveals a Water Plume 20 times the Moon's Size, Extending far beyond its Release Region.
The Water Vapor Erupts at an Astonishing Rate of 79 Gallons Per Second, Filling an Olympic-Sized Swimming Pool Quickly.
Cassini Orbiter Previously Captured Images and Samples of Enceladus's Plumes, but Webb offers New Insights and Context.
Webb's Observations Show a Dense "E-ring" and a Torus of Water Fueled by the Moon's Vapor Plumes.
Only 30% of the Water in the Torus Escapes, Supplying 70% of the Water in the Saturnian system.
Webb will Continue to study Enceladus, Guiding Future Missions to Explore the Moon's Ocean and Ice Crust.
Webb's Observations Provide a Unique Opportunity to Understand Water Evolution and Composition in Enceladus' Plume and Ocean.
