Some pesky scientists have just pointed out an appalling design error in NASA’s latest attempts to find life on Mars. This is beginning to look like a conspiracy. Does someone not want us to find life on Mars?

As for the report, I'm really sure that where theres water theres bound to be life. Not.
It could mearly be a water pond full of sterile water, but until we get a probe to land there we'll never really know, and even then would we be told the truth..?
The plumes of gas and ice shooting from the south pole of the Saturnian moon Enceladus contain sodium salts, which is the best evidence so far that the satellite harbors a liquid water ocean.

we live in hope don't we.. for me it was more the fact that it was getting serious air time and they were talking about extra terrestrial life rather than little green men and playing the x files music..
PS I'm glad you like the avatar it makes me smile too... "Mon the SuBo!"
Like the other Gigantes, Enceladus had serpent-like lower limbs, "with the scales of dragons for feet"

Agreed. The Gov will cover anything up. Or could this be a start of the disclosure process

I, for one, have never seen the photography that shows anything of the likes you are presenting to this conversation.
Ice geysers erupt on Enceladus, bright and shiny inner moon of Saturn. Shown in this false-color image, a backlit view of the moon's southern limb, the majestic, icy plumes were discovered by instruments on the Cassini Spacecraft during close encounters with Enceladus in November of 2005. Eight source locations for these geysers have now been identified along substantial surface fractures in the moon's south polar region. Researchers suspect the geysers arise from near-surface pockets of liquid water with temperatures near 273 kelvins (0 degrees C). That's hot when compared to the distant moon's surface temperature of 73 kelvins (-200 degrees C). The cryovolcanism is a dramatic sign that tiny, 500km-diameter Enceladus is surprisingly active. Enceladus ice geysers also likely produce Saturn's faint but extended E ring.
