Is There Life On Enceladus (One of Saturn's Moons)?


Water, energy, and organic molecules are the key ingredients for creating life from non-living material in a process called Abiogenesis. Enceladus has hydro thermal vents which emit plumes of material into space, and researchers have found some of this material to be compounds bearing nitrogen and oxygen. Similar compounds are known to play a role in producing amino acids which, are the basis of known life.
