Cassini Finds Global Ocean in Saturn's Moon Enceladus
NASA

One huge nail in the coffin for creationists that try to assert there is no water anywhere else but Earth (even though we've previously found some) Thumbsup

Quote:Researchers found the magnitude of the moon's very slight wobble, as it orbits Saturn, can only be accounted for if its outer ice shell is not frozen solid to its interior, meaning a global ocean must be present.

The finding implies the fine spray of water vapor, icy particles and simple organic molecules Cassini has observed coming from fractures near the moon's south pole is being fed by this vast liquid water reservoir. The research is presented in a paper published online this week in the journal Icarus.

Previous analysis of Cassini data suggested the presence of a lens-shaped body of water, or sea, underlying the moon's south polar region. However, gravity data collected during the spacecraft's several close passes over the south polar region lent support to the possibility the sea might be global. The new results -- derived using an independent line of evidence based on Cassini's images -- confirm this to be the case.

Dammit Octapulse, you so lazy. Tongue

Move over Europa, we got other moons to explore.

Wow, I've heard creaturds say a lot of crazy shit, but that would be a new one for me.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

I guess you haven't seen the "Why Creationists Get Laughed At" videos

RE: Cassini Finds Global Ocean in Saturn's Moon Enceladus
I don't think I've ever heard creationists say that either. We already knew there is water on europa and there is ice/possibly water on mars. Water does seem to be pretty abundant...

edit: hahahaha, just saw the video, "scientists have been searching for water on other planets, but it is futile", holy fuck

RE: Cassini Finds Global Ocean in Saturn's Moon Enceladus
Nonono. You see all the water STARTED here on Earth, but geyesered up out of the ground during the Noah flood, and some of it achieved escape velocity and landed on other bodies in the solar system.

.... or there's the apologists who say that the flood was caused by a giant ice comet hitting the Earth.

... and then there's the idea that prior to the flood there was a giant shell of ICE around the Earth that somehow blocked UV and increased atmospheric pressure, and those atmospheric changes allowed humans to grow into giants and lizards to grow into dinosaurs and everyone and everything to live longer, but that ice got converted to water for the flood, and let's ignore the fact that atmosphere doesn't work like that and that the ice was somehow both thick enough to have the strength to hold together under planet-wide gravity stresses and tidal stressing from the moon yet thin enough to let sunlight through and yet still contained enough water to cover Everest and who cares where that water went anyway?

I say put all of them in the same room for a debate and see who manages to persuade the others.
