As With Earth - Titan Has Water!

Post by Wade Hampton III » Mon Feb 04, 2019 4:21 am

Saturn's moon Titan is perhaps the most famous among the gas giant's
many satellites. The moon had become known for its hydrocarbon snow
and methane lakes, but the Cassini also found that it has an ocean
just like Earth. Unlike the ones in our planet, however, Titan's
subsurface ocean is extremely salty and has water comparable to that
found in the Dead Sea.

"This is an extremely salty ocean by Earth standards," study lead
author Giuseppe Mitri of the University of Nantes in France said in
a statement. "Knowing this may change the way we view this ocean as
a possible abode for present-day life, but conditions might have
been very different there in the past."

Back in 2006, the Huygens probe aboard the Cassini found evidence
that Saturn's moon Titan had methane rain. A photo of Titan's poles
showed the weather at the surface. It was also discovered that methane
drizzles on the moon every day and temperatures could drop to minus
300 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 184 degrees Celsius).

‘Crazy, methane-based’ alien life.....

Russia Today...

A NASA planetary scientist tasked with discovering life in our solar system’s
‘Ocean Worlds’ has put forward the idea that a strange form of alien life
lives on Titan, the Earth-like moon that revolves around Saturn. Dr Amanda
Hendrix, the co-lead of the NASA Roadmaps to Oceans World Group, said her
program may represent the greatest chance of discovering alien life in our
solar system, and she believes Titan could be their best shot. “We need to
understand whether these oceans are habitable and, if so, whether these
oceans actually host life,” she told the Express.

A Colony on Titan!

Titan is the largest moon of Saturn, and it is one of the most lively
and interesting places in the Solar System, with huge lakes and rivers,
a dense atmosphere and mountains. So will we(?) ever colonize it? Here
i(I) try to answer that question.

Pluto Has a Buried Ocean — And So Might Many Other Worlds
By Mike Wall 2 days ago Science & Astronomy

Insulating layers of 'gas hydrates' may keep buried water from freezing solid.
