Water is deemed essential due to that fact lots of things can dissolve in it and it facilitates chemical reactions without getting involved in them. Not alot of other chemicals in the "known" universe are good at that.

Gee its a wonder that Nasa hasn't notice this before about Enceladus! Methinks maybe an ocean has been spotted where it wasn't before? Enter Solar system warming......as opposed to 'Global Warming'.
