The Cassini probe has found evidence that there may be an underground ocean on Saturn's moon Titan. The moon is already an area of tremendous interest to planetary scientists, given its dunes, lakes and mountains. It also has one of the most Earth-like surfaces in the solar system. Now, by using radar measurements to detect changes in the moon's rotation, scientists have gotten more insight into what's below the surface.
At this point, scientists think that there may be an ocean of liquid water and ammonia sitting some 60 miles down beneath the surface.
A paper describing the work appears in the current issue of the journal Science. The Cassini group is planning to take another close look at Titan today, when the craft will study the moon's upper atmosphere.
Caverns of the Titan Moon.
I sence there will be life, but only intelligent on a small scale, like micro worms, and organisms that do not have cells, or have larger ones.
do you know any good sites that will help me better understand cosmology?
i went to a site that told about how this scientist discovered that if there is water there will be life.
that only stands to reason. water IS one of the basic building blocks of life(unless of course the scientists have been lying to us like they did about pluto being a planet). so it's perfectly logical that there would be life where there's water.
hey, wouldn't it be great if there were intelligent life living under the surface of titan? sniff. sniff. i smell a sci-fi novel coming on.
by the way, i love this website. i just wish more people would comment on the articles in here.
I think it'll be cool find out that their is life on the moon Titan, but imagine how much money it'll cost us to get there. I also want conclude that how long will take us 'till we find a way to get their?
