New gravity measurements have been done and it has been determined that Enceladus, a small Saturn’s moon, has liquid water sea.

Buried under miles of ice, about as large as Lake Superior, this liquid water sea touches Enceladu’s silicate core. Wich means it could have minerals in it that are necessary for life.
