Deep Canyons Filled With Methane Found On Saturn’s Moon Titan
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has found deep canyons on Saturn’s moon, Titan, that are flooded with liquid methane.
A research paper in the journal Geophysical Research Letters describes how scientists analyzed Cassini data from a close pass the spacecraft made over Titan in May 2013. During the flyby, Cassini’s radar instrument focused on channels that branch out from the large, northern sea Ligeia Mare.
