"We now know Enceladus has nearly all the ingredients needed for life as we know it," said NASA.
This discovery is particularly exciting because it makes Enceladus the only place beyond earth where scientists have discovered direct evidence of a possible source of life.
As is to be expected, Twitter was supremely excited by this news. Reactions soon started pouring in thick and fast.
