      life needs light

      Sea floor extremophiles: exist

      Enceladus’ core likely interacts with the ocean through hydrothermal vents, similar to structures found on Earth’s ocean floor. These vents are believed to have played a role in the origin of life on our planet.

      There are lifeforms on Earth that still live off these vents.

        Right, life needs energy. On earth, that’s most often from sunlight, but there are magma vent extremophiles using heat, and there are fungi that use nuclear radiation.

      Both are valid, the sun can’t be too far away life needs light a energy source.

      Which Enceladus – as moon of a gas giant – has plenty, as tidal forces.
