Enceladus is remarkably youthful in appearance
Enceladus is only 310 miles (500 kilometers) in diameter, but it’s one of the most scientifically compelling bodies in our solar system.
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft captured this view of the moon. The image captures the wrinkled plains that are remarkably youthful in appearance and free of large impact craters.
The view was acquired at a distance of approximately 49,000 miles (79,000 kilometers) from Enceladus and it looks toward it’s leading hemisphere.
