Enceladus

Saturn’s bright satellite Enceladus is covered with water ice that reflects almost all the Sun’s light back into space.

The geologically active moon, discovered in 1789 by William Herschel, has craters, ridges and smooth plains. Most spectacularly, Enceladus has geysers that spew frozen water thousands of kilometres into space.
