Cassini–Huygens ( kə-SEE-nee HOY-gənz), commonly called Cassini, was a space-research mission by NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA), and the Italian Space Agency (ASI) to send a space probe to study the planet Saturn and its system, including its rings and natural satellites.

Saturn moon Mimas might be hiding an internal ocean | The Cassini spacecraft "identified a curious oscillation in the moon's rotation, which often points to a geologically active body able to support an internal ocean." If Mimas has an ocean, it represents a new class of small, stealth ocean worlds

14 hours of Enceladus geyser action through a movie sequence of images, garnered from the final dedicated observation of the Enceladus' geysers by the imitable Cassini spacecraft.

Water plumes from Saturn’s icy moon Enceladus may show promising signs of life. Though the Cassini mission ended in 2017, researchers are still combing through its plume data to get better insight into Enceladus’ ocean.
