Saturn’s moon Titan: an Earthlike world in the Outer Solar System
The Cassini mission has revealed Saturn’s moon Titan to be one of the most complex and Earth-like appearing worlds in the Solar System, yet Titan’s surface is from organic materials dissected by hydrocarbon rains. Below Titan’s surface, the deep convective ice and deep subsurface ocean may be one of the best places to search for life in our Solar System. This presentation will describe the most recent understanding of Titian’s geology and potential for alien life beyond Earth.
