Saturn’s ‘Death Star’ Moon Could Be Hiding Ocean

Saturn’s ‘Death Star’ Moon Could Be Hiding ‘Life-Friendly’ Ocean – http://huff.to/1wggwMM

Life friendly is getting ahead of ourselves but I don’t see the issue with the ocean.  If the surface is frozen solid it can stay trapped.  It would freeze immediately if exposed.  If the gravity were too weak to trap vapour you’d expect attrition of the surface ice over time from ice going directly to vapour.  So what’s the issue.  Somewhere in the universe there will be a small planet that’s almost entirely water.
