Titan

Titan Saturn’s Largest Moon Exploration with latest news and photos about titan moon facts, life, surface, planet, temperature. Also covering titan atmosphere water ice nitrogen methane ethane clouds including Cassini–Huygens Mission photos.

  • A new analysis of data from Titan suggests that the moon's icy outer crust is twice as thick as scientists previously thought. Beneath this icy shell, which could be 200 kilometers thick, an ocean of liquid water is thought to exist.

  • Cassini 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

  • By analyzing observations of Titan collected over the past 30 years, scientists have found that changing seasons affect the Saturnian moon more than previously thought.

  • By analyzing images of Titan's river networks, researchers have determined that in some regions, rivers have created surprisingly little erosion. This means that erosion on Titan may be extremely slow, or some other phenomena may have wiped out older riverbeds and landforms.

  • Observations from the Cassini spacecraft show a concentration of high-altitude haze and a vortex at Titan's south pole, indicating that the seasons are turning on the mysterious moon.

  • New data from Cassini indicates 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 on our solar system.
