Saturns Moon, Enceladus, can potentily support life

A new study reveals that under Saturn’s moon, Enceladus, icy crust is a big ocean of liquid water. The ocean is 6 miles deep and has a rocky seafloor. This discovery reassures the idea that many places in space could be habitable but aren’t necessarily obvious. “The main implication is that there are potentially habitable environments in the solar system in places which are completely unexpected,” author Luciano Less said. For  example “Enceladus has a surface temperature of about minus 180 degrees Celsius, but under that surface there is liquid water.” I believe that this finding should encourage more research into life sustainability in Space.
