Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second largest in the Solar System, best known for its convex ring system. In 2004, the NASA Cassini probe went into orbit on the planet to explore the unique traits and surrounding natural satellites. Four years later, on March 12, 2008, Cassini passes 30 miles from the Enceladus moon, where it flows through jets of water, carbon dioxide and other gases. The discovery made the space agency believe that Enceladus could hide some form of life.
He said last month: "Cassini has deepened our understanding of the origin and evolution of Saturn.
"Because just beyond the ring is found another treasure, a place that may contain answers to some of our deepest questions about the possibility of living in the solar system. of the sun, just on the outer edge of the rings of Saturn lies the icy Enceladus moon. "
Dr. Cox continued to describe how the surface of Enceladus hypnotized scientists.
He added: A small moon is actually just the size of Iceland. "But it does not make it boring, it is the most reflective object in the solar system, over 90% of the light that strikes it bounces back." 1
"The largest, known as the tiger strip, is over 100 km (62 miles) long.
"But for all its superficial beauty, this is what's happening under the ice."
Dr. Cox explained how NASA later discovered that the water was below the surface of that moon, that he can support life in the future.
He continued: "What have we found? under the shell of Enceladus, ice should be ranked as one of the greatest discoveries in space exploration of the 21st century.
But that was a discovery that hides a simple look.
"Giant jets of water vapor and ice erupted from its surface."
"More than 200 kg of material was released every second."
Yesterday revealed when NASA believes the world will end,
At present, it merges around 600 million tons of hydrogen in helium every second, turning four million tons of matter into energy every second.
He spoke in 2010: "The sun will spend most of its life in the main sequence, constantly burning its enormous
"But in the end, the fuel will end and its core will collapse."
"Then something remarkable will happen.
