Enceladus' folds

This is a shot by Cassini of a 37-mile patch of Enceladus from about 6,680 miles. The resolution is about 200 feet per pixel. Note how few impact craters there are in this stretch of the surface!

Here is the photomosaic from the first flyby. It covers a stretch of about 200 miles (the whole moon is only 314 miles in diameter). Nota bene the fabulously corrugated surface!
