Infrared images peek through the clouds of Saturn’s mysterious moon Titan

Titan is a bizarre world, hosting some striking similarities to Earth but with distinct differences. Both have thick nitrogen-rich atmospheres, tectonic activity, liquid oceans, rivers and lakes on the surface, a consistent “sea level,” and possibly even ingredients for life. But don’t pack your bags just yet: Titan’s fizzy oceans are filled with liquid methane, its atmosphere is devoid of oxygen, static electricity might make its sand grains extremely clingy, and any life might not even be water-based like us.
