This is an exciting discovery . The more worlds we discover that have liquid water the greater the chance that life exists else where. Even if life does not exist elsewhere in this solar system the chances of it evolving elsewhere are getting higher and higher.

Who knows, maybe bacterial life on other planets do not even need water. The chemistry for life has yet to be determined.

nifty subject though, yet how could liquid water exist even though it is soo far from the sun...maybe the internal heat of the moon itself...meh, it's still a cool subject.

Looks like they've changed it a bit, now reads:
So, not life in the solar system after all...

yeah i just read this on yahoo...kinda cool hopfully theres life there

mabe they did find life there and the world governments stoped them from saying it and instead they have to say "evidence of water"

Maybe readers of this thread should pay a visit to this thread to see how life might exist in dark, cold, underwater heat vents thumbsup.gif.

The process that generates this heat is not yet understood but it is thought to be caused by a combination of  radioactive decay and flexing of the surface brought about by the particular characteristics of Enceladus' orbit.

There is more about this discovery on Unexplained Mysteries sister site, Spaceflight News: Potential Liquid Water on Enceladus

the intense force gravitating Enceladus is enough but with the core, would heat up any water to a livable temperature.

If it is a tiny moon...and if it is continually spouting up water which is creating one of the rings of Saturn...and if there is a sea under the surface...

....how long could the moon continue to spout water until the sea ran dry?

there might be ways that the water renews itself.

Hard to say, but the point is, it's still spouting water today.
Another point is, how far back in the past did it start?  Long enough ago for life to evolve?  It has likely been spouting water since shortly after the moon formed or was captured by Saturn when tidal stretching by Saturn heated the interior enough to melt the ice.  It may be small, but a 314 mile wide ball of ice is still one big ice cube!

Edit: Enceladus is likey a Kuiper belt object.  There are tons of these icy worldlets out there waiting to be "kneeded into life!"

I'm pretty certain there is life... what I found frustrating is that all the probable places to find life forms in our solar system are shielded behind thick layers of ice as hard as steel (because of the low temperatures).

I'm pretty certain there are evolved life forms in Europa (maybe something similar to dolphins and fish), and perhaps some sort of marine insects in  Enceladus.

It possible that unicellular life exists in one of these water worlds.

It is also quite plausible that zero life forms exist there.  That is what I choose to believe.
