Exploring the Depths of Titan's Seas
Cleveland OH (SPX) Mar 13, 2015
In our solar system, there are only two planetary bodies with liquid lakes and seas-Earth and Titan, a moon of Saturn. But instead of water, Titan lakes are made of liquid methane with temperatures registering at almost -300 F. So how would NASA study this interesting place? Steve Oleson of NASA Glenn's COMPASS Lab (Collaborative Modeling for Parametric Assessment of Space Systems) believes the team, along with partners from the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab and the Penn State University Appl ... read more
