10 Amazing Volcanoes In Space You’ve Never Heard Of
Tiger Stripes on Enceladus
The Tiger Stripes on Enceladus, one of Saturn’s moons, measure up to 130km in length and 2km wide apiece. The ridges all stem from a central fracture in the moon. All of them are actually active volcanoes – or a string of them combined into one.
Pillan Patera on Io is covered in a dark spot that spans a total of 400km. The lava temperature within the volcano is said to exceed 1,700 degrees Celsius, making it hotter than anything found on Earth throughout the ages.
