I just love the imagery in these descriptions of Saturn’s moon, Enceladus, in Friday’s NYT 3/13:
Cassini Gets a Cool Shower From an Ice-Spewing Moon
Then again, no other 310-mile-wide ice-ball moon in the solar system has a geyser of icy particles shooting out of its south pole.
Geysers of ice. Truly, this world is more wondrous than dreams could ever be.
… That some folks think this is somehow not enough to contemplate, by itself, but that they also have to concoct something even more amazing — makes me sad. Icy geysers draw out the reverent in me. Adding, “… this is proof of the magnificence of God who is even more awesome” is just sad, like an emotionally damaged person who can’t hear of someone else’s success without trying to talk about their own.
