Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A joint research effort between NASA and the European Space Agency has found proof that nitrogen within the atmosphere of Saturn's moon Titan came from conditions very similar to those that formed most of the ancient comets in the Oort cloud, according to a new report in the Astrophysical Journal Letters. The Oort cloud is a spherical cloud of predominantly icy space rocks believed to surround the Sun at a radius far outside the Solar...

Scientists Scratching Their Heads Over Titan's Vanishing 'Magic Island'

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A mysterious “island” that suddenly appeared and then disappeared on one of Saturn’s moons, as seen in NASA images, has scientists baffled. Dubbed the “Magic Island,” the feature on Titan, Saturn’s largest moon, showed up in an image captured by NASA's Cassini probe last year. Images of the same location captured nothing before or days after. According to a paper on the phenomenon published in Nature Geoscience, the...

Saturn's moon Titan -- Titan is the planet Saturn's largest moon. It is larger than either of the planets Mercury or Pluto and is the second-largest moon in the solar system after Ganymede (it was originally thought to be slightly larger than Ganymede, but recent observations have shown that its thick atmosphere caused overestimation of its diameter). Titan was discovered on March 25, 1655 by the Dutch astronomer Christian Huygens, making it one of the first non-terrestrial moons to be...
