  1. I thought it was a very good article to relate to our current lesson in ASTR105. It was a great example of observational science. When the article states, “Enceladus was considered a dead icy world until NASA’s Cassini mission arrived. In 2006, it spotted a fountain of material erupting from the moon’s southern pole. Later observations by the spacecraft revealed that an ocean, rather than a localized lake, existed beneath the surface of the moon.” I also never thought about the fact that the particles brought back to earth change during space travel. This article is very intriguing and helps me become a critical thinker.
