But I look at this sentence: "it's because we changed [Cassini's orbit] to allow closer passes on Enceladus to sample water that geysers spew out" and it's hard not to see a p...

This is not correct in general; e.g. geostationary orbits around Earth are fairly stable; but it is indeed correct for a complex system such as Saturn, especially where Cassini was. I notice you us...

Without external intervention, ev...
