We once thought oceans made our planet unique, but we’re now coming to realize that #OceanWorlds are all around us. Today we announced discoveries about two moons inside our solar system.
Saturn’s moon Enceladus & Jupiter’s moon Europa have been identified as #OceanWorlds with «some of the ingredients needed for a habitable environment,» based upon new findings from our Cassini spacecraft and the Hubble Space Telescope.
This illustration shows Cassini diving through the Enceladus plume in 2015. New ocean world discoveries from Cassini and Hubble will help inform future exploration and the broader search for life beyond Earth.
