Enceladus And Europa

Science Daily: New insights into 'ocean worlds' in our solar system
summary - Two veteran NASA missions are providing new details about icy, ocean-bearing moons of Jupiter and Saturn, further heightening the scientific interest of these and other "ocean worlds" in our solar system and beyond. Scientists announce that a form of chemical energy that life can feed on appears to exist on Saturn's moon Enceladus, and researchers also report additional evidence of plumes erupting from Jupiter's moon Europa.

Compelling, but not direct evidence of anything more than that these moons have what it takes to harbor some kind of life MAYBE.
