Even nearing the end, the Cassini spacecraft is still producing amazing science. This story focuses on Saturn's moon Enceladus; researchers from Cornell University in New York say they have found evidence that the moon has changed its polar axis of spin. This is based on features they've found on the surface of the moon.
