>>If it has any biologically interesting water, then that water must be buried deep - sealed against evaporation, pressurized by depth, and warmed above freezing by internal planetary heat from original accretion and continuing radioactive decay. You'd want a seismic survey, then a kilometer or three of deep drilling, followed by sample retrieval and examination both for frank biota and their metabolic products. Bugs are a pain in the patootie in oil drilling.<< what? No fountaining possible from those deep pressurized wells?
