Ice on other planets

  • Water consists of hydrogen and oxygen that are plentiful in our solar system. Planets furthest from the Sun, like Jupiter and Saturn, have more water than planets closer to the Sun, like Earth, Mercury and Mars.
  • Planets of the outer solar system have several icy moons, such as Europa, which is covered by a layer of ice several kilometres thick.
  • Enceladus, one of Saturn's moons, contains cryovolcanoes on its southern polar region. It spews ice instead of magma.
