NEW YORK – Scientists have found new evidence that one of Saturn's moons has an ocean beneath its surface. That's important because liquid water is a key ingredient for life.
PARIS - Huge geysers on Saturn's moon Enceladus may be fed by a salty sea below its surface, boosting the odds of extraterrestrial life in our own Solar System, according to a study released Wednesday.

Its getting some attention now. Cant believe it hasnt been hot topic at this site yet
I tried in a couple of threads to say that Enceladus -- not necessarily Europa -- should be the attention...

Perhaps this esoteric science stuff doesn't thrill people as much as the "tiny humanoid statue on Mars" kinds of threads.
Perhaps now that the original findings are being confirmed we will see a little more interest.

Right. But I saw somewhere (here on ATS??) someone try to claim Enceladus was an artificial moon, a spaceship (?!) and to 'prove' it, they posted a side-by-side picture with the 'Death Star' from 'Star Wars'.
Serious discussion was dealt a death blow...

I cant imagine it would be intelligent life, but any form of life somewhere else in the system would be a remarkable find.
