Is there a possibility that this well known moon, Titan, in our solar system has the possibility to harbor life? Well that's not too far off the
radar as geologists have stated and pondered, and still are pondering, over the question on whether or not the moon which orbits our beloved gas giant
Saturn, if its chemical processes support a prebiotic chemistry similar to that under which life evolved on earth?
Although the chemical compounds and high levels of gases, lethal to any known life found here on earth, and temperatures where water cannot exist
except in the form of solid ice rock; the planets similarity to our own is actually quite astonishing. It doesn't take a genius to figure out this is
a very significant step in our space exploration program and the implications of this find are quite far reaching.
Time will only tell what important discoveries can be made from this satellite orbiting Saturn. The possibility to study the similarities and
differences of Titan's evolution time line compared to Earth's in the not too distant future is exciting to say the least and will be heralded quite
boldly among scientists across many different fields.
