      "LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) -- The space probe Cassini discovered a
      significant atmosphere around Saturn's moon Enceladus during two recent passes
      close by, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory said on Wednesday.

      Scientists speculate the atmosphere comes from volcanoes, geysers or some
      other kind of sub-surface activity, JPL said in a statement.

      "These new results from Cassini may be the first evidence of gases
      originating either from the surface or possibly from the interior of Enceladus," said
      Dr. Michele Dougherty, principal investigator for the Cassini magnetometer and
      professor at Imperial College in London"
