While rovers are ideal for exploring Mars, a boat is best for Titan, Saturn's largest moon. Scientists are proposing a new mission to explore this alluring world that would send a floating probe to land in a lake on Titan.
Titan, the largest of the more than 60 natural satellites of Saturn, is covered in seas, lakes and rivers of methane, and hosts a thick atmosphere, making it one of the most Earth-like bodies in the solar system. Smaller than Earth but wider than Mercury, Titan is in many ways more like a planet than a moon.
Scientists don't know if life might be possible on Titan. Some think it's too cold, as average temperatures are a chilly minus 289 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 178 degrees Celsius). Yet others say the insulating atmosphere and plentiful liquids, not to mention a possible subsurface ocean, could be hospitable to microbial organisms.

Next, we need a Jetski...
There most have been lots of dead dinosaurs and algae on Titan, far more than on Earth, to create such huge lakes and rivers of hydrocarbons....
Unpossible. NASA’s mission is to build Muslim self esteem. Mad Mo never swam in the methane lakes of titan ergo it is haram. So we cannot go there . The Muslim street would be offended and NOTHING is more important to America than preventing hurt muslim feelings.
It would be hilarious if this thing landed on the surface of a Titan ocean, only to be instantly gobbled up by some large methane sea creature.
I hear that on Titan, the crabs are as big as elephants. When they bring one of those babies home, I’m going to have a swimming pool full of melted butter waiting.
However if the Jews want to build a capital there, Mo can always dream up an excuse to claim it.
I suggest the paint is a beautiful pea green.
Well OBVIOUSLY this is all a Zionist plot. I mean really. Can any of us think otherwise?
Mel Brooks started the propaganda against the poor child-thighing goat fethistists with his “Jews in Space” routine. That much is obvious. I call on all Jews to immeadiately jump in the ocean so as to show proper humility for their transgressions!
If the goal was to float a boat in a molten lake of fire I would suggest the boat being named the MOHAMMED.
Is that the name of a special Russian astronaut?
First, we have to get President Romney to resurrect NASA.
Thanks BenLurkin. An ‘extra, extra’ to the APoD members.
