Beneath The Icy Crust Of Enceladus. The research paper written by scientists with the Cassini mission, published in the journal Science, suggests the presence of hydrogen gas. Hydrogen gas, that could potentially provide a chemical energy source for life, is pouring into the subsurface ocean of Enceladus from hydrothermal activity on the seafloor of this bewitching, distant moon-world. The three little moons (Methone, Pallene, and Anthe) orbit at very similar distances from Saturn, and they have a dynamical relationship. Mimas disturbs the trio of little moons, and causes the orbit of Methone to vary by as much as 20 kilometers (12.4 miles). Mimas causes the orbit of Pallene to vary by a slightly smaller amount--but it has the greatest influence on the orbit of the moon Anthe. Full moon nights are also the perfect setting for all the harmful omens of the world to get out. You have black magic and all sorts of witchcraft happening on a full moon night. You can also trace the word "lunatic" to "lunar", which is the Latin word for 'moon'. The etymological link between the two words will definitely lead you to conclude that mental health and the full moon may have a link mythically, if not medically.
