Scientists used data gathered by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft during 13 years of exploring the Saturn system to make detailed images of the icy moonand to reveal geologic activity.
New composite images made from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft are the most detailed global infrared views ever produced of Saturn’s moon Enceladus. And data used to build those images provides strong evidence that the northern hemisphere of the moon has been resurfaced with ice from its interior.
Cassini’s Visible and Infra…

A new study authored by Southwest Research Institute planetary scientist Dr. Tracy Becker discusses several new views of the asteroid 16 Psyche, including the first ultraviolet observations. The study, which was published today in The Planetary Science Journal and presented at the virtual meeting of the American Astronomical Society’s Division for Planetary Sciences, paints a clearer view of the asteroid than was previously available.
At about 140 miles in diameter, Psyche is one of the most massive…
Underwater coral skyscraper taller than the Empire State Building found in Great Barrier Reef – Telegraph.co.uk
The reef was explored by underwater robot SuBastian, which livestreamed its discoveries
An underwater coral skyscraper taller than the Empire State Building has been discovered in the Great Barrier Reef.
Scientists from Australia’s James Cook University said they were “surprised and elated” to find the 1,640ft structure, the first detached coral reef to be discovered in 120 years.
The team aboard the Schmidt Ocean Institute’s Falkor ship made the discovery last week as part of efforts to map the reef sea floor.
On Monday the Institute, a non-profit founded by former Google chief executive…
Water exists on the moon, scientists confirm – The Guardian
Proof of significant amounts of H2O has implications for future lunar missions
Scientists have gathered some of the most compelling evidence yet for the existence of water on the moon and it may be relatively accessible. The discovery has implications for future missions to the moon and deeper space exploration.
With no significant atmosphere insulating it from the suns rays, it had been assumed that the moons surface was dry until the 1990s, when orbiting spacecraft found indications of ice in large and inaccessible craters near the moons poles.
Then in 2009, imaging spectrometers…
