Follow the plume: the habitability of Enceladus.
TLDR
The science goals that would motivate an Enceladus mission are more advanced than for any other Solar System body, and the goals of such a mission must go beyond further geophysical characterization, extending to the search for biomolecular evidence of life in the organic-rich plume.
The Gravity Field and Interior Structure of Enceladus
TLDR
The quadrupole gravity field of Enceladus and its hemispherical asymmetry is determined using Doppler data from three spacecraft flybys to indicate the presence of a negative mass anomaly in the south-polar region, largely compensated by a positive subsurface anomaly compatible with the existence of a regional subsurfaced sea at depths of 30 to 40 kilometers.
