    Beta testing continues! I can't seem to get away from looking at the rocks. One of the early bugs in the current beta was what types of volcanism was presented in the system info panel and what we observed on the surface. Combined with geysers and fumaroles being pretty rare, it has been slow work.

    Enceladus, the moon of Saturn, was one of the first places geysers were observed. And they looked like they were spewing molten rock when they should be jetting water. This has now been fixed, and they are back and suitably impressive. They are also in logical places, here a video of a geyser fields where two tidal cracks in the surface intersect:
