Saturn's moon Enceladus may support alien life - NASA

New research from NASA indicates that Saturn’s moon Enceladus may support microbial life. 

Details of new findings about ocean worlds in our solar system are being announced live by the agency.

NASA scientists have detected hydrogen from hydrothermal vents in ice plumes from Saturn’s ocean-bearing moon Enceladus in conditions which they say could have led to the rise of life on Earth.

The discovery makes Enceladus the only place beyond Earth where scientists have found direct evidence of a possible energy source for life, according to the findings published in Science.

The revelations center around discoveries from the agency’s Cassini spacecraft and the Hubble Space Telescope.
