Space Game! Where in the Solar System is Destination Nine? (day 2)

Here you are, Space Bloggers.  Another day 2 limmer-iddle!

I was named for a Grecian god’s wife

who, like me, surely suffered much strife.

And yet hidden down deep

we both carefully keep

the ingredients needed for life!

Hmm… That’s certainly not an easy one.  But I know you space bloggers don’t solve limmer-iddles because they’re easy.  As President Kennedy said about sending humans to the moon:

Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? Why does Rice play Texas? We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard…

Good luck you intrepid space bloggers. Make as many guesses as you want. I have no doubt that, if you keep trying, you will achieve your noble goal. Destination 9 awaits!

    This doesn’t have to do with this post, but it’s really cool:

    I think Aido-boy’s comment just kept me from embarrassing myself with a bad guess. :) His comment also reminded me that just today I read that they just discovered that Enceladus, one of Saturn’s moons, is “raining” down water vapor onto Saturn. And water is necessary for life as we know it. But I looked it up, and Enceladus is named after a boy…

    It’s one of Jupiter’s moons, right?
