Saturn's moon Enceladus has a huge ocean of liquid water, scientists confirm.

europa, moon of jupiter. An ice world with 4 tiger stripes close to its south pole. It is believed that under the ice lies an ocean of liquid water and therefore life.

Enceladus - icy moon of Saturn

Enceladus (494 km), a moon of Saturn that churns with internal heat, ejecting plumes of microscopic ice particles into Saturn's orbit (photo from NASA's Cassini spacecraft)

The Cassini spacecraft took this view of Saturn’s moon Dione in October 2005, with the tranquil gold and blue hues of Saturn in the distance. The horizontal stripes near the bottom of the image are Saturn's rings

Jupiter, if it were as close as the moon

This gibbous phase (bottom) shows part of Jupiter's moon Europa. The robot spacecraft Galileo captured this image mosaic during its mission orbiting Jupiter from 1995 - 2003. Visible are plains of bright ice, cracks that run to the horizon, and dark patches that likely contain both ice and dirt. Raised terrain is apparent near the terminator, where it casts shadows. Europa is nearly the same size as Earth's Moon. Liquid oceans might exist below the icy surface.

Very Pretty !!! Sheldon probably has this on his bedroom wall :)

Saturn’s moon Dione

Just a little bit of astronomical magnificence for your day - Io, in front of Jupiter. Io: Moon Over Jupiter Io (usually pronounced “EYE-oh”) is 3,600 kilometers in diameter, about the size of planet Earth’s single large natural satellite.  Image Credit: Cassini Imaging Team, SSI, JPL, ESA, NASA

Titan's heavy atmosphere, lakes of hydrocarbons and the possibility of life
