"10 Unsolved Mysteries of Titan": is it alive?
John Michael Godier presents “10 Unsolved Mysteries of Titan” (14 min).
This little film is just a week old.
Drones will fly around Titan in 2034.
Godier talks about the possibility of a subsurface ocean on Titan, resembling Europa’s.
He also mentions that hydrogen and acetylene disappear from the atmosphere as they float down, as if they were being eaten by alien microbes.
The dunes on Titan appear to consist of tholin, and some of the lakes appear to reside inside craters.
Titan would become much warmer in 4 billion years when the Sun expands to becoming a red giant.
