Question

Have hydrothermal systems been found on celestial bodies other than Earth?

Answer

Well, I think it's an interesting one. The extremophiles that could potentially be detected by direct planetary probes; so going to our local neighbours and actually trying to look for microbial life, that where we're identifying these will potentially be around Jupiter, the Callisto, Ganymede orbiters, potentially to go underneath the ice surfaces of these moons of Jupiter.
