  1. 1. Why couldWhy could there bethere be life onlife on Titan?!Titan?! By EvieBy Evie ProckterProckter
  2. 2. My inquiry scientists are very excited about titan harbouring life so thats why i decided to research its many similarities to earth
  3. 3. What is Titan? Titan is Saturn’s largest moon and the 2nd largest in the solar system. it was discovered in march 25 1655 by the Dutch astronomer Christiaan Huygens, and was the fifth moon of a planet apart from the Earths to be discovered. the gravity is 1.352 m/52 ( earth is 9.78 m/52) and the distance from earth is 1,272,000,000. It takes 16 days to orbit saturn
  4. 4. A world like our own In January 14th 2005 the huygens space lander touched down on the surface of titan. the pictures reveal startlingly familiar features: rivers running down hiillsides and emptying into an ocean along a jagged coastline
  5. 5. Ethene and Methane The lakes of titan are bodies of liquid ethene and methane that have been detected by the huygens space lander. A down side is it is toxic when mixed with water and air. but maybe an alien life source will be able to adapt and be able to drink it. it is also colourless odourless and has no taste
  6. 6. ATMOSPHERE TITANS ATMOSPHERE IS MADE MOSTLY OUT OF NITROGEN LIKE EARTHS AND IS THE ONLY OTHER THING THAT HAS IT IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM. RESEARCH SAYS TITAN HAS 15 PERCENT MORE NITROGEN THAN EARTH (EARTH IS 80% TITAN IS 95%)
  7. 7. Temperature the problem with the temperature is its -180 degrees but like before maybe an alien life source can adapt to the climate
  8. 8. My conclusion AT THIS POINT IN TIME NO ONE REALLY KNOWS IF THERE IS OR WILL BE LIFE ON TITAN. HOWEVER AS OUR TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPS WE MIGHT DISCOVER SOMETHING NEW IN THE FUTURE.
