Ok, and this means what, other than one of Saturn's moons have water?
 
2006-03-09 11:55:16 AM
If you get thirsty, you can go there.
 
2006-03-09 11:56:39 AM
Are they going to open a swimming pool soon?
 
2006-03-09 11:57:13 AM
So long as we leave Europa alone then we can use this one? Sweet!
 
2006-03-09 11:57:25 AM
Is that pronounced like the mexican dish?
 
2006-03-09 11:59:58 AM
I thought Enceladus was buried inside Mount Etna?

That Saturn's moon was designed more intelligently than that of Planet Gobo, in the Yuhan Nebula?

I LOVE the name Europa.

There's a very nice concert band piece named "Europa" as well.

Just saying...

I once got a nasty rash on my Enceladus
 
2006-03-09 12:02:12 PM
Damn... and how much is that shiat gonna cost after they bottle it?

/You know I'll buy it!
//Coming to you straight from Enceladus...

Oh only water, good thing it's just water and not life. Now I can rest assured that science isn't challenging any other beliefs of my faith, like the earth being flat, us being the center of the universe, the sun going around us, and earth being the only planet god graced with life.
 
2006-03-09 12:03:06 PM
...and where's there's water, there's FUNDING!!!
 
2006-03-09 12:03:13 PM
...again?
 
2006-03-09 12:03:14 PM
But when will we discover Matt Drudge's soul?
 
2006-03-09 12:03:16 PM
Let me be the first to welcome our Enceladonian . . . err . . . Enceladian . . . umm . . . Enceladonite overlords.
 
2006-03-09 12:03:41 PM
How many beaches?

Floston Paradise, here I come.
 
2006-03-09 12:04:05 PM
...again?

Oh. "Followup" tag. Never mind.
 
2006-03-09 12:04:09 PM
Cue the "big frigging deal" retards:

can't believe that assclown is still in the closet!
 
2006-03-09 12:04:31 PM
water. wow. never seen that before.
 
2006-03-09 12:04:57 PM
Dead Man Typing: and how much is that shiat gonna cost after they bottle it?

Screw that. I want beer made with Enceladusian water.
 
2006-03-09 12:05:04 PM
Voyager 2 found water ice on Enceladus back in 1998.

This ain't news.
 
2006-03-09 12:05:09 PM
How exciting! Congrats Cassini team!

/I love Dr. Carolyn Porco

MrBeefy: But when will we discover Matt Drudge's soul?


When there is proof he has one.

Encephalitis?

2006-03-09 12:05:24 PM
well apparently mine and their definitions of life followed by the levels of enthusiasm differ greatly.

I was expecting aliens to come attack us..... now we have to be prepared for alien moisture?

/ok that didn't sound right
 
2006-03-09 12:05:43 PM
the main concern is how will this increase my chances of seeing boobs today?
 
2006-03-09 12:05:44 PM
I think the significance is that water is a required (in NASA think) component for the possibility of life to be present. Pretty significant since, in nature, there are biological factors present in about 99.5% of water in a liquid form.

Gigantes overlords.
 
2006-03-09 12:06:45 PM
and if you believe that, i've got some beachfront property on Enceladus you might be interested in. let's talk.
 
2006-03-09 12:06:54 PM
I had Enceladus for lunch today. Side of refried beans... YUM. Thanks, mom!

/not kidding, either
 
2006-03-09 12:06:56 PM
DarthBrooks: Voyager 2 found water ice on Enceladus back in 1998.

That would be water ice. I'm guessing this is claiming liquid water.
 
2006-03-09 12:06:58 PM
DarthBrooks - big difference between water ice and pockets of liquid water only meters below the surface, ass.

Wow. How do you people not fall down more?

/screw the nay sayers
 
2006-03-09 12:07:02 PM
yay water! now that justifies their budget doesn't it? too bad we still have a second rate education system, rampant crime, and cancer to deal with. but hey, there's water on some useless dirtball out there in our solar system!
 
2006-03-09 12:07:03 PM
From the DRUDGE Home Page : "'NASA is planning to make a huge announcement today, about possible life in our own solar system'..."

Holy crap! There's life in our solar system?! Who would have thunk it?
 
2006-03-09 12:07:05 PM
I guess we're going to need to make some additions to the bible if we discover life on that moon.

/please discover life, please

Moon nude beaches?

A waiter once spilled water on MY enchiladas...
 
2006-03-09 12:07:56 PM
All these worlds are yours, except Enceladus. Attempt no landing there. Do not give them contracts to run your ports.
 
2006-03-09 12:08:09 PM
Just in time for Congress to reconsider its funding.
 
2006-03-09 12:08:11 PM

They probably won't have those open until tomorrow.
 
2006-03-09 12:08:31 PM
big friggin deal.

Yeah, you hit your head right on the nail. Cancelling NASA will solve all of these problems.
 
2006-03-09 12:09:06 PM
Possible life in our solar system...but not INTELLIGENT life. Not here, not there, not anywhere. Not on a boat and not with a goat.

big difference between water ice and pockets of liquid water only meters below the surface, ass.

Also already discovered by Cassini last year when it was examining cryo-volcanic geyers at the south pole of Enceladus, dick.

Wanebo: I think the significance is that water is a required (in NASA think) component for the possibility of life to be present.

that, plus H20 -> O -> LOx (rocket fuel).... not sure if it's actually viable, but i did hear that somewhere...
 
2006-03-09 12:09:20 PM
Liquid water = potential re-fueling point.

flaEsq, unless Enceladus also has a gigantic diamond core, I'm still going to Europa.
 
2006-03-09 12:09:47 PM
can i pronounce it Ankle-Ladies?
