Enceladus, a moon of Saturn, may be able to support life

Analysis of information from the Cassini probe suggests that Enceladus, a moon of Saturn with an ocean hidden beneath a thick layer of ice, could be capable of supporting life. Cracks in the icy surface of the moon let out plumes of gases and sea spray from the hidden ocean. The composition suggests it would be capable of supporting life according to the lead research scientist on the study.

Life can probably take root in more places than considered possible. Places on Earth that had once been thought to be uninhabitable showed life had thrived. Heck, there's are species that learn near and even inside of volcanoes.
