Titan, a moon of Saturn may harbor life.


I recently saw a video called ‘Last Call for Titan‘, a video about a most interesting satellite moon of Saturn. It has an atmosphere and supports all the requirements of life!

Voyager 1 is a space probe launched by NASA on September 5, 1977, as part of the Voyager program to study the outer Solar System. It was redirected towards Saturn when recent discoveries came to light. Subsequent discoveries by that satellite lead to the development of the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft.

The spacecraft was launched with two elements: the Cassini orbiter and the Huygens probe. Cassini-Huygens reached Saturn and its moons in July 2004, beaming home valuable data that transformed our understanding of the Saturnian system. Huygens entered the murky atmosphere of Titan, Saturn’s biggest moon, and descended via parachute onto its surface – the most distant spacecraft landing to date.

The resulting discoveries were mind boggling to say the least. The moon a replete with all the ingredients necessary to to formation and maintenance of life. This served to wet the appetite of mankind to go there, but there was an obstacle in the way – Any manned craft would face a one way travel time of 5 years…

That was true until today with NASA’s announcement of the Q-Drive, a game changing drive that didn’t need to bring along fuel, it would make it own along the way…
