Evidence that Saturn's moon Mimas is a stealth ocean world: Simulations suggest that Saturn's smallest, innermost moon could have an expanding, geologically young ocean

Summary by Ground News
Mimas seemed like an unlikely candidate, with its icy, heavily cratered surface marked by one giant impact crater that makes the small moon look much like the Death Star from Star Wars. If Mimas has an ocean, it represents a new class of small, stealth ocean worlds with surfaces that do not betray the ocean's existence.
