Saturn’s Mysterious Moons

Watch this and other space videos at Watch in high-resolution 1080p. Launched three years before the new century… a spacecraft wound its way through the empty reaches of the solar system. On Earth, its progress was little noted, as it swung twice by the planet Venus, then our moon. And Earth. The asteroid belt. And Jupiter. Almost seven years later, on the first of July 2004, the Cassini probe entered the orbit of Saturn. It then began to compile what has become one of the greatest photographic collections of all time, of a giant gas planet, surrounded by colorful rings, guarded by a diverse collection of moons, and millions of tiny moonlets. Within this record, is a trail of clues… pointing to the energy sources and complex chemistry needed to spawn life. What are these mysterious worlds telling us about the universe, and Earth? In the outer reaches of the solar system, a billion and a half kilometers from the Sun… there is a little world known as Enceladus. Nearly all of the sunlight that strikes its icy surface is reflected back into space, making it one of the brightest objects in the solar system. At its equator, the average temperature is minus 198 degrees Celsius. It can rise about 70 degrees higher in grooves that stretch across the south pole like tiger stripes. Looming over it is the giant planet Saturn. In myth, Saturn – the Roman name for the primal Greek God Chronos – was the youngest son of Gaia, or Earth, and Uranus, sky. Wielding a

    You. will need to explain me that one

  3. MegaNinja210 says:

    apparently you have too, considering i found multiple controllable misspells, controllable be people with even the smallest hint of intelligence and decency in them, ones like: “din’t”, “pple”… “Pple” again, and i’m pretty sure if i had the damn time to count all the misspells going through your channel, you and me both would cry, you because i embarrassed you and me because i’m not used to being around that level of stupid. and i’ve been around stupid, IF I HAD THE TIME form of stupid.

    When I was a little child, I thought my parents were joking world is infinite, space never ends, there are other planets and so far we’re only living organisms in the universe. Ah I miss being a kid…

  7. Kaitoo17 says:

    @tuihyua yep. nobody can believe about this quickly. And, even my friend also earning well monthly doing surveys and reading mails daily. its worth a try here :

    The thing is that the moons of Saturn and Jupiter might contain LIQUID water which is one of the most important requirements for life. Yes Mars has water but as you said it is solid not liquid.

  9. MrAdrien1999 says:

    i don´t think there is a god. i think god is something created by man to give us hope.

  10. Faisal Rajan says:

    Information like this really makes us seem so immaterial. I don’t know about others but earthly problems seem like a joke when you see what our role/impact is in the greater cosmos. What an awesome time to be alive and to have the ability to perceive, observe and experience the beauty!

    I want to kiss you so bad right now :D

    My comment does what? I tried re-reading my comment and couldn’t find what you’re replying to. Be more specific. I know how the internet works in many, many ways – as I said, you’re ignorant. Very ignorant at that. You can type fast, you say. Then, why bother typing in poor grammar if you can type so fast? It takes little time, you avoid flame, and don’t look like an idiot.

    I took the time to reply. Was it worth it? I would say so.

  13. 5T34LTHcamoT4NK says:

    Congrats, you passed the idiot test

    I dint have anything to do, it’s still pretty worthless
    Your comment does
    Yes actually you got videos on your channel
    My point is that you dont know how the internet works, pple make comments like they text, using faster typing and not taking the time to write them like a letter, using short spelling to get more characters
    My english grammar skills are little yes

    So if you took the time to reply, does that mean this comment was worth it?

  14. TerrariaLetsPlays says:

    Evidently you don’t perceive my comment as worthless seeing as you spent time replying. What tells you I have a lack of brain cells? You’re ignorant – you know nothing about me. I am a grammar Nazi, what’s your point?

    How does knowledge of the internet become relative to this conversation?
    Don’t act like I didn’t offend you. I did. I can’t take your comment as a joke when I can’t understand what the fuck you’re trying to say. Still, your grammar skills seem to be little.

  15. 5T34LTHcamoT4NK says:

    Your comment is worthless, your a grammar Nazi, you lack of brain cell’s and your user name makes you look like a faggot.

    If you knew how to insult pple i might of been offended, but i was not.
    If you knew more about the internet you would of saw that my comment was a joke and not made to be taken seriously.
    If you don’t understand this, well better go practice and read more comments, grammar is a thing of the pass on the internet

  16. TerrariaLetsPlays says:

    Your comment makes little sense, your grammar is shit, and the emoticons you type make you seem like a gigantic faggot.

  17. MaxWyd says:

    I think the planet Saturn is the most stunning one.. Just looks ferocious.

  18. 5T34LTHcamoT4NK says:

    :) space toddlers is a real thing man, did you not read the ancient books! wrote by pple who though the stars where hole in the sky and that the earth was flat, because that explains why things fall down of course :3

  19. skwuim says:

    I couldn’t agree more.

  20. Bowdin Deese says:

    What is the spiritual character of these moons..? and when do we find or put life on them…?

  21. SwingItLikeMoe says:

    Saturn. The most beautiful planet ever created.

  22. David Tregaskis says:

    Yup, there are different definitions of theory. A scientific theory by definition isn’t the same as a “theory” you might have about why no one likes you.

  23. fred6059 says:

    ‘Saturn return and you chase down its moons throw them into a new gravity’. No wonder this is one of my favorite songs.
