Saturn's Moon May Have the Right Conditions for Life

Postby laconte » Fri Apr 13, 2012 1:12 pm

Saturn's moon Enceladus is spraying jets of water vapor and organic compounds, with the same salinity as Earth's oceans. Scientists believe the small moon, with its sub-surface liquid sea, organics, and an energy source, may host the same type of life we find in similar environments on Earth.
