Singing in the Rain (on Saturn)

My friend Ryan just sent me a link to this story about the moon Enceladus "raining" water onto Saturn. It has been known for a long time that Saturn had water in its upper atmosphere but no one knew why. Now we do. Encaladus is shooting plumes of water out into space.

That's awesome, because, you know, where there's water...

Incidentally, Enceladus was the departure point for three astronauts, Baxter Bradbury, Sascha Sagan and Hymie Heinlein, who would return from the future with the rock band Rocket to Saturn. But that's another story...
