28 Aug 2009, 00:00 UTC Saturn’s moon Enceladus – Past, Present, and Future August 28th will be the 220th anniversary of William Herschel’s discovery of Saturn’s moon, Enceladus. Enceladus is rapidly becoming one of the most interesting bodies in the Solar System, due in large part to jets of water vapor emanating from it’s active south pole which hint at the possibility of subsurface water pockets or an ocean. This exciting object is currently under study by NASA/ESA’s Cassini spacecraft currently orbiting Saturn, and moving towards its second mission extension with more close flybys of Enceladus on its timetable. This podcast covers the history, current understanding, and upcoming plans for Enceladus, and is moderated by David Seal, Cassini Mission Planner at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, with participation from Cassini Project Scientist Dr. Robert Pappalardo, JPL Enceladus expert Dr. Amanda Hendrix, and Marek Kukula, Public Astronomer of London’s Greenwich Observatory, which is home to the only surviving component of Herschel’s telescope used to discover Saturn’s now famous moon. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SPONSOR: This episode of 365 Days of Astronomy is sponsored by the Physics Department at Eastern Illinois University: "Caring faculty guiding students through teaching and research" at www.eiu.edu/~physics/ The 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast is a project ...
