Record #183737:

Geyser teaser / Stephen Battersby.

Title: Geyser teaser / Stephen Battersby.
Author(s): Battersby, Stephen.
Date: 2007.
In: New Scientist. (2007.), Vol. 195(2618) (2007)
Abstract: Examines source of watery volcanism on Saturn's moon Enceladus, where images from spacecraft Cassini revealed plumes of vapour erupting from geysers in south polar region. Researchers suggest bulk of energy is supplied by tidal heating as thick mantle of ice flexes in Saturn's gravitational field. Discusses possible explanations for ice mantle's apparent flexibility, including structure within ice mantle or polar sea of liquid water, and role of radioactive decay. Anticipates Cassini's revisit to Enceladus and discusses possibility of life there.
