Titan has 100 m deep methane lakes


  • Saturn’s largest moon Titan has small liquid lakes that run more than 100metres deep, perched atop hills and filled with methane.
  • This was founded by scientists using data from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft.
  • The findings are published in the journal Nature Astronomy.
  • They provide new information about the way liquid methane rains on,evaporates from and seeps into Titan.
