Silicate-Geysers

Silicate geyser

Geysers are vents in the surface of a planet or moon which have periodical eruptions of hot water and steam. They're rare on planets without atmospheres, but are present in the in-game galaxy. They don't always vent, because it takes time to build up pressure. This makes them hard to spot.

It's possible to propel an SRV into the air by sitting on top of a geyser. For example in this video an SRV jumps 13 km high at a geyser on Enceladus in Sol.

  5. More volcanism on CD-86 4 4 c a, so are these also silicate vapour geysers?
