NASAs Cassini Space Probe Finds New Saturnian Ocean   2jQbTYrXfjiHVDwAypnR6Tl72eJkfbmt4t8yenImKBV9ip2J1EIeUzA9paTSgKmv

It’s hard enough for kids to remember all the known oceans and seas — Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, Norwegian, Barents — and now they can add one more to the list: the Enceladan Ocean. The name is lovely, and the place is nifty, but there’s not much chance of visiting it soon. It’s located on Enceladus, one of Saturn’s 66 known moons. While Enceladus has been familiar to us since it was first spotted in 1789, the discovery of its ocean, courtesy of the venerable Cassini spacecraft, is a whole new and possibly game-changing thing.
