    Absolutely Stunning Photos of Saturn's Moon Titan

    Titan and Dione. Titan is the only other body in the solar system with liquid on its surface: It has hydrocarbon lakes and seas, shores and rivers, and seasonal rainfall like on Earth. This mysterious, potentially life-friendly moon is also home to a cryovolcanic region that deposits the moon’s slushy innards on its surface. Now, scientists think there could be a liquid water ocean hiding beneath its crust. Image: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute

    Saturn's third-largest moon Dione can be seen through the haze of its largest moon, Titan, in this view of the two posing before the planet and its rings from NASA's Cassini spacecraft released on Dec. 22, 2011. The north polar hood can be seen on Titan appearing as a detached layer at the top of the moon here.

One possibility is that the rings formed relatively recently in our Solar System's history, perhaps only about 100 million years ago when a moon-sized object broke up near Saturn. Evidence for a young ring age includes a basic stability analysis for rings, and the fact that the rings are so bright (...) #Saturn #space
