Saturn’s moon Titan continues to baffle NASA scientists. Recently, a team found the formation of an ice cloud appearing out of thin air on Titan. This is similar to what we see over Earth’s poles. However, there’s minimal explanation to this event. While the agency scrambles around for answers, others look for signs of alien life on Titan.
ALIEN ICE CLOUD ON SATURN’S MOON BAFFLES NASA
NASA scientists remain confused over Saturn’s moon Titan. The appearance of an ice cloud on Titan goes against everything they previously knew about it. At least, so they thought. On Earth, the usual process for cloud formation involves condensation of some kind. There’s that cycle of evaporation and condensation of water. However, the same cycle apparently takes place on Titan as well but instead of water, methane takes its place. Scientists have been trying to find the amount of vapor in this alien ice cloud yet have hit a road block.
NASA’S TECHNOLOGY NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO DETECT ALIEN VOICE ON SATURN’S MOON
On explanation that NASA has is that vapor might be present on Saturn’s moon but the Voyager instrument isn’t sensitive enough to detect it. Furthermore, Cassini didn’t detect any vapor either. So instead of a cloud forming by condensation, they think that the ice formed because of a reaction taking place on other ice particles. Researchers are calling this “solid state chemistry”. Sure, that’s one way to put. However, they shouldn’t rule out aliens.
NASA TO SEARCH FOR METHANE ALIEN ON SATURN MOON
The lakes, rivers and seas of Titan are made of methane, not water. However, the chance for alien life still exists. The Cassini mission shows that Titan is more similar to Earth than researchers originally thought. As we now see, Titan continues to surprise us with fascinating new qualities. If future observations continue to deliver like this, a major breakthrough is possible. Who knows what secrets lie under the frozen layer of Titan? As we search far and wide for other life, perhaps we need to focus more efforts on our own backyard.
