Cassini Radar Data Shows Calm Seas On Saturnian Moon Titan
2014-03-20 10:08:52

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Several presentations this past week at the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (LPSC) talked about the possibility of waves rippling across the seas of Saturn's largest moon Titan. Data taken from NASA/ESA/ASI’s Cassini mission revealed some pixilation in the sea of Punga Mare that led researchers to assume rippling was occurring on the liquid hydrocarbon lake. Some new research, published online in Geophysical Research...

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online On Saturn’s largest moon Titan it has long been known that the surface has liquid oceans. However, the movements of these liquid hydrocarbon seas have eluded prying eyes for years. Now, the NASA/ESA/ASI Cassini spacecraft may have caught its first glimpse of movement on this faraway moon. After years of searching, scientists believe they have finally spotted waves rippling on the seas of Titan. If this can be confirmed, it would...

Cassini Nears 100th Titan Flyby
2014-03-06 09:16:49

NASA Ten years ago, we knew Titan as a fuzzy orange ball about the size of Mercury. We knew it had a nitrogen atmosphere -- the only known world with a thick nitrogen atmosphere besides Earth. But what might lie beneath the hazy air was still just a guess. On March 6, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft will swoop down within 933 miles (1,500 kilometers) of Titan to conduct its 100th flyby of the Saturn moon. Each flyby gives us a little more knowledge of Titan and its striking similarities to...

Enid Burns for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Facebook is focused on blanketing the world with Internet, and it may be poised with taking the next step in reaching underdeveloped areas where it has yet to become available. The social network is reportedly in talks to acquire Titan Aerospace for as much as $60 million, TechCrunch reports. If the acquisition goes through, Facebook can launch a fleet of drones to orbit certain areas to supply Internet to those areas. It will go a long...

A Wingsuit Could Let Usain Bolt Fly On Saturn's Largest Moon
2014-03-03 10:40:17

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Usain Bolt, who holds records as the fastest man on Earth on two feet, may be so fast that he could fly if he was dropped off on Saturn’s moon Titan and given a wingsuit. Physics students from the University of Leicester have calculated that, based on the world-record holder’s superhuman speeds, he would be able to take flight on the distant moon. Bolt has been recorded reaching speeds of up to 40.25 feet per second, or...

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...
