JETS ON THE MOON ENCELADUS what makes them work?

Scientists continue to search for the cause of the geysers on Saturn's small
moon Enceladus. Geysers are visible as a large plume like stream of water vapor
and ice particles escaping the moon. Inside the plume are jets of dust and
gas. What actually causes/controls the jets is enigma. The Cassini
spacecraft continues to collect new data to look for ideas and actual conclusions.
