Oceans at the Outer Limits: Enceladus, Outer Moons, Pluto

Chapter

Abstract

The Southwest Research Institute’s John Spencer delves into the oceans of ice and water blanketing the outer moons, with a focus on Saturn’s dramatic erupting satellite Enceladus. Beyond Saturn, we survey moons of the other outer worlds, where water or other liquids might be hidden, or might once have been hidden, beneath their hard-frozen surfaces.
