Saturn’s ‘Death Star’ moon could have a secret underground ocean

Scientists have found “compelling evidence” that Saturn’s “Death Star” moon is hiding an ocean just beneath its surface, furthering the search for possible life in our solar system.

Researchers say that Mimas, Saturn’s smallest, innermost moon — whose resemblance to Star Wars’ infamous battle station inspired its nickname — revealed the first clue that it could be a “stealth ocean world” after NASA’s Cassini probe spotted a strange wobble in the moon’s rotation.
