jbooma Posted March 10, 2006 Share Posted March 10, 2006 http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/11736311/ By Alan Boyle Science editor MSNBC Updated: 8:16 p.m. ET March 9, 2006 Scientists have found evidence that cold, Yellowstone-like geysers of water are issuing from a moon of Saturn called Enceladus, apparently fueled by liquid reservoirs that may lie just tens of yards beneath the moon's icy surface. The surprising discovery, detailed in Friday's issue of the journal Science, could shoot Enceladus to the top of the list in the search for life elsewhere in our solar system. Scientists described it as the most important discovery in planetary science in a quarter-century. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
