NASA Details 'Ocean Worlds' in the Solar System

The oceans exist a few miles below the surface of Enceladus, therefore researchers must draw conclusions from the vapors that rise into the atmosphere through the cracks in the ice. Despite being thousands of metres under the sea and therefore far away from sunlight, life was being sustained via the energy produced from hydrothermal activity released from the vents.

Signs Of Hospitality To Life Found On Saturn's Moon Enceladus

That life may very well be limited to microbes, which have an easier time thriving somewhere like Enceladus, which is icy on the outside and heated on the interior primarily by Saturn's gravitational forces. The results suggest that the geysers contain a surprising ratio of molecular hydrogen, carbon dioxide and methane. The researchers reported that the hydrogen, along with carbon dioxide that was also found, could mean that undersea microbes are producing methane as they do in the bowels of ...
