Saturn's icy moon: NASA's Cassini spacecraft took pictures of a forest of new ice jets spraying from prominent fractures crossing the south polar region of Saturn's moon Enceladus and yield the most detailed temperature map to date of one fracture, NASA says. The images include the best 3-D image ever obtained of a "tiger stripe," a crevice that sprays icy particles, water vapor and organic compounds. For Cassini's visible-light cameras, the flyby provided the last look at Enceladus' south polar surface before that region of the moon goes into 15 years of darkness, NASA says.
