    Just came by pictures of Saturn's planet like moon Titan. Pictures taken by the Huygens probe. They say Titan(the size of Mars) is almost like early earth. Titan includes mountains and sand. It also had methane oceans and lakes. Scientists have observed waves during investigations of the moon. Under a lower layer of ice are oceans of salt water. Titan's atmosphere is the only nitrogen-rich atmosphere in the solar system aside from Earth's. 5 billion years from now when the sun expands, they say Titan will heat up and be basically a copy of Earth now.

    Eventually they said they are going to send a rover and a mobile ocean probe. Will be awesome to get clear shots like the recent ones from Mars.

    Great! When I can I move there? The earth is just basically the insane asylum of the solar system. :shakey:

    Very cool, LT.

    If Titan ever does develop oceans like ours, you have to wonder what the tides will be like. :bug:

    If it has salt water then theoretically life could develop. They say life can also develop in methane oceans and lakes. It would be very cool to find life on another plane or moon in our solar system.

    I'd like to live on Titan just because the name is cooler than dumb old Earth

    It may become the surfing capital of the solar system. Surfs up!

    I love this picture.. its is the surface of every solar body man has landed on ..
    taking a picture from the surface of Titan was a picnic compared to Venus

    Our Solar Sytem's moons are far more intersting than the planets themselves

    as for water and the possibility of life
    Europa has oceans of frozen liquid and
    would be the odds on favorite..

    also the IS reported finding Plankton living on the outer skin of the International Space station! which is 200 miles above the Earth!

    Sea plankton found on the outer surface of the ISS
    Astronauts collecting samples on the International Space Station have found traces of sea plankton, and are baffled as to how it got there.

    The sun turning into a red dwarf is under the nuclear theory of the universe. Look up the electric theory and you'll get all the answers that the nuclear theorists say can't be answered. I'm going with the side that has plausible answers, electric.

    There are no black people on Titan, so there is no crime.

    There are no white people on Titan, so there's nothing to steal.

    This is why Vash was an A student in school and I a C student. :snicker:
    This seems to bet the landing through its pics taken, I think.

    our sun like all stars is a giant ball of gas that is so hot that most of it is act like plasma
    we all know that it is generating energy by fusion.. it is this fusion that prevents most stars from
    being crushed by their own gravity.. when the fusion stops .. usually when that star begins to fuse Iron its core collapse and it explodes scattering those elements into space..
    there is a chance that the atoms in your left foot were made in one star and the ones in your right foot in another... we are all basically star dust

    With that in mind does the Electric theory account for Super Novas?
