Rhea was the subject of discussion here on ATS a while back, the discovery of a Thin Oxygen Atmosphere on Saturn's moon was indeed an exciting find, now the Cassini spacecraft has produced high-resolution pictures of the moon and found a history of tectonic activity and fractures cutting through craters, this in turn could help identify potentially habitable environments….

New images of Saturn's moon Rhea have revealed dramatic fractures cutting through craters on the moon's surface. The findings are helping astrobiologists understand the processes that occur on moons of giant planets, and could help identify potentially habitable environments on these small worlds.

The new pictures have also enhanced maps of Rhea..

Quite an interesting read for those into Space exploration… Link
