Why Does Enceladus Have Stripes at its South Pole?

Saturn’s moon Enceladus has captivating scientists ever since the Voyager 2 mission passed through the system in 1981. The mystery has only deepened since the arrival of the Cassini probe in 2004, which included the discovery of four parallel, linear fissures around the southern polar region. These features were nicknamed “Tiger Stripes” because of their appearance and the way they stand out from the rest of the surface.
Since their discovery, scientists have attempted to answer what these are and what created them in the first place. Thankfully, new research led by the Carnegie Institute of Science has revealed the physics governing these fissures. This includes how they are related to the moon’s plume activity, why they appear around Enceladus’ south pole, and why other bodies don’t have similar features.
The study, which recently appeared in the journal Nature Astronomy, was led by Doug Hemingway – a Carnegie Fellow with the Institute’s Department of Terrestrial Magnetism. He was joined by planetary scientists Maxwell Rudolph of the University of California Davis and Michael Manga of the University of California Berkeley.

The Universe is very complex 

I wonder if the Universe is the large scale version of the Microcosm at quantum levels. Each mirroring the other but at different scales to each other.

Cracking Good article Doone. Just when you think you're beginning to understand cosmology and Physics science comes along and discovers something new, which of course is brilliant.

I didn't know there was a debate around the origins of the Nile River.

Comment by Doone on November 12, 2019 at 6:45pm

The Nile River is much older than previously estimated

https://www.livescience.com/nile-river-older-than-thought.html

For thousands of years, the Nile River has fertilized valleys along its winding path through northeastern Africa, anchoring ancient civilizations and still serving as an important route of transport and irrigation today. 

But the age of its venerable waters, which stretch over 4,225 miles (6,800 kilometers), has been debated, with one group of experts claiming the river was born around 6 million years ago when a drainage system changed course, while another claims the river is five times older than that.


A new study finds evidence that supports the latter theory: The Nile River may have emerged around 30 million years ago, driven by the motion of Earth’s mantle — the thick layer of rock between the Earth's core and crust, a group of researchers reported on Nov. 11 in the journal Nature Geoscience.

Why golf balls have dimples. It turns out, somewhat counter intuitively, those dimples significantly decrease the drag on the golf ball as it flies through the air, compared to a smooth ball http://ow.ly/iBbo30nMBi4
