Let's Learn About Saturn!

Exploring Saturn took Tanno and Iguda to the moons Titan and Enceladus. Saturn has more than 80 moons! If you look closely at the full picture of Saturn, you might be able to spot some of them.

Saturn’s moon Enceladus

This image of Saturn’s moon Enceladus shows the features in false colour. The surface has an icy crust and under that is a liquid ocean of methane and water.

The frozen surface has many cracks and deep valleys, which may be places where water shoots up like a fountain.

The picture below was taken by the Cassini spacecraft on Nov. 27, 2005 at a distance of approximately 148,000 kilometers. Individual jets spurt ice particles and water vapour.

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft

Many of the great pictures we’ve seen of Saturn and its moons were taken by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft that visited and orbited before deliberately crashing into Saturn.
