Saturn’s moon Titan’s atmosphere even more Earth-like than previously thought

18 junio 2015

Scientists have observed how a widespread polar wind is driving gas from the atmosphere of Saturn’s moon Titan. The team analyzed data gathered over seven years by the international Cassini probe, and found that the interactions between Titan’s atmosphere, and the solar magnetic field and radiation, create a wind of hydrocarbons and nitriles being blown away from its polar regions into space. This is very similar to the wind observed coming from the Earth’s polar regions.
