The orbiting Cassini spacecraft has spotted what appear to be water geysers on one of Saturn's icy moons, raising the tantalizing possibility that the celestial object harbors life.
The surprising images from the moon Enceladus represent some of the most dramatic evidence yet that water in liquid form may be present beyond the Earth.
Cassini recently snapped high-resolution images showing geyser-like eruptions of ice particles and water vapor at Enceladus' south pole, scientists said. The pictures do not actually show any water in liquid form, but scientists believe the ice and vapor must be coming from underground reservoirs of water close to the surface.
That's pretty bad ass, huh? I definitely do NOT believe that there is other life "out there", but I'd be psyched to be wrong. But, can we assume that the conditions for life on Earth are similarly required on other planets? Prolly not. But, how cool is it that we can check out something over 800 miles away?
