Enceladus


[Media Source*]

(Saturn Today)
The view is about 300 kilometers (200 miles) across and shows the myriad of faults, fractures, folds, troughs and craters that make this Saturnian satellite especially intriguing to planetary scientists. More than 20 years ago, NASA's Voyager spacecraft gave hints of a surface cut by tectonic features, and subsequent images of other icy moons have revealed many different ways that stresses have acted on icy moon crusts.

Update: Didn't like how the picture affected the frame of the blog. You can view it below by clicking "Continue Reading."


Photo from Saturn Today



Of all the planetary systems out there (save for our own of course) Saturn holds the most "glory" for any space colony. With two other moons like these (one twice as large and the other a bit smaller) and Titan's Ammonia environment holding the possibility of methane below it's surface, you have everything you need for a colony to be self sufficient. More about the photo:
Many styles of fracturing are evident in this mosaic. Extending downward from the top center of the mosaic for hundreds of kilometers is a broad belt of complex, interwoven fractures. A huge rift 5 kilometers (3 miles)-wide dissects this belt and extends into several older-looking, distinct regions or "cells" of terrain that themselves exhibit distinct fracture patterns.

Selah!
