Source of Enceladus Geysers Theorized

Scientists were astonished to view giant geysers erupting from a warm section of Saturn's moon, Enceladus. Reminiscent of the geysers of Yellowstone National park in the US, the geysers are thought to erupt due to a hot interior of the moon resulting from radioactive decay. Surface temperatures of Enceladus are typically at 330 degrees Fahrenheit below zero.
