A Recipe for Geophysical Exploration of Enceladus

Orbital geophysical investigations of Enceladus are critical to understand its energy balance. Mapping Enceladus’ gravity, improving the accuracy of the libration amplitude, and measuring Enceladus’ tidal response would provide critical constraints on the internal structure, establishing a framework for assessing Enceladus’ long-term habitability.
