- Jun 20, 2013Scientists have found that a common antifreeze compound that might exist on Saturn's moon Titan can get trapped within ice-like cages. This discovery could influence our ideas about the evolution and development of life on Titan and other icy celestial bodies.
- Apr 6, 2013Scientists previously thought that chemistry in Titan's atmosphere became more inert closer to the surface. Now, a new study suggests that complex organic chemistry that could lead to the building blocks of life extends lower in the moon's atmosphere than previously thought.
- Jan 15, 2013A new paper explains the unexpected qualities of the surface of Titan as experienced by the Huygens probe when it landed on the moon eight years ago. In January of 2005, Huygens came to rest on Saturn's largest moon after bouncing, sliding and wobbling across
- Dec 26, 2012As 2012 draws to a close, Astrobiology Magazine highlights the year's top stories. At number 8, scientists revealed that Saturn's moon Titan likely harbors a layer of liquid water under its shell. The findings could have implications in the search for life in our solar
- Nov 2, 2012Cassini has captured images showing how Titan glows dimly in the dark. Light is emitted when charged particles bang into nitrogen molecules in the moon's dense atmosphere. The data is a glimpse into the processes behind the natural organic chemistry factory that exists on the
