Saturn Moon Enceladus Could Host Life
The search for possible life in our solar system continues with the discovery of an active hydrothermal system on an icy Saturn moon. Enceladus first gained prominence as a likely candidate for life when plumes of water vapor were seen coming from its south pole in 2005. Scientists recently found grains of rock rich in silicon with the Cassini spacecraft leading them to believe they were formed by hydrothermal vents in the moon's subsurface ocean. As hydrothermal vents are believed to have spawned life on Earth, Enceladus is about to become a popular place to explore.
