Drudge Report show's them as TWO SEPERATE stories..
NASA is planning to make an announcement about a new discovery.
Exact details of what we can expect to hear have not been released. Earlier reports about the announcement may have been misleading.
"We have the smoking gun" that proves the existence of water, said Carolyn Porco, a Cassini imaging scientist from the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colorado.

However, the Ice level on Europa is extremely thick, with the under-ice ocean existing due to the gravitational forces of Jupiter keeping the core heated. So now the question is, what's allowing water so near to the surface of Enceladus that it can melt through the ice at times and come through (so far as has been observed, this doesn't happen on Europa that I've seen) to the surface.

I think NASA should plan a mission to try to collect some of the ice/water from that has been ejected into space from the geyser and return it to Earth, similar to the Stardust mission.
Could they possibly find microbial life from a captured sample?

So the theory is that the gysers shoot so high, that they replenish the rings? Sounds too amazing to be true.
