Researcher helps identify new evidence for habitability in ocean of Saturn’s moon Enceladus

Southwest Research Institute’s Dr. Christopher Glein has discovered new evidence for a key building block for life in the subsurface ocean of Saturn’s moon Enceladus. New modeling indicates that Eincladus’s ocean should be relatively rich in dissolved phosphorus, an essential ingredient for life. This finding bolsters mounting evidence for habitability within this small Saturnian moon. The next step is clear: “We need to get back to see if a habitable ocean is actually inhabited,” Glein says.
