DARMSTADT, Germany - New, refined pictures from Saturn's moon Titan released Saturday show a pale orange surface covered by a thin haze of methane and what appears to be a methane sea complete with islands and a mist-shrouded coastline.
Space officials worked through the night to sharpen the new photos taken by the space probe Huygens, which snapped the images on Friday as it plunged through Titan's atmosphere before landing by parachute on the surface.
Many officials looked tired from their overnight work but were still clearly elated about the successful arrival of data from Huygens the day before — a major triumph for the European space program.

In this case it has to be the precursor to organic materials because it cannot be the other way around..

Mars and Titan are quite far away from each others, remember how long Cassini's trip took.

science can use water (H2O) to create oxygen so could methane on titan be proccessed on a large scale and proccesed oxygen from mars be used as a fuel source for a return trip to our outer solar system
