Life on Saturn's moon?
Extra-terrestrial life in our solar system? Well new data showing that Saturn's moon Enceladus possibly has underground lakes of water open up the real possibility of life say German researchers in an article published in Nature.
The finding of water now makes it more probable that life 'is out there' in our own solar system.
What kind of life we can but speculate but this is good news for space scientists in that it will increase public interest and that could support their claim on increasingly hard to come by research funding as the recession bites deep
Saturn's icy moon Enceladus could contain watery underground caverns, forming a potential home for alien life, say scientists.
German researchers have found salt - a signature chemical for seawater - in ice grains from vapour jets streaming out of surface cracks, providing the strongest evidence yet of a liquid water reservoir beneath the moon's frozen crust.
