In 2015, NASA’s Cassini mission discovered that a global ocean lies beneath the icy crust of Saturn's geologically active moon Enceladus. Now, Harvard researchers Manasvi Lingam and Abraham Loeb have published research suggesting that such conditions are not only common in the universe, but are capable of sustaining life.
