A new study has found a food source for life on one of Saturn’s moons, Nasa announced on Thursday.

Underwater vents on a moon named Enceladus are similar to ones found on Earth’s ocean floors, which are home to microbes and other sea life.

Hunter Waite, lead author of the Cassini study said of a food source capable of sustaining life that “it would be like a candy store for microbes.”
