Ice Geysers on Enceladus

Outgassing, in a way, of ice on Saturn's moon Enceladus. It's so cold there--the atmosphere is frozen-- that even the frozen water seems positively hot in comparison and, under pressure, acts like subterranean superheated water here on Earth.
Very cool, indeed. The ice may make up the ghostly E ring around Saturn.
