Surfs Up on Saturn Moon Titan

Surfs Up on Saturn Moon Titan

If you want to book a vacation to hit the surf on Saturn’s wettest moon, Titan, you are alive at just the right time to look up your travel agent. Titan, which is known to be the only other planetoid in our solar system to have liquid on its surface, has just been shown to be the only other body nearby to have waves. Because these waves are in liquid methane rather than water, however, and exist at temperatures around -290 degrees Fahrenheit, it would have to be a specialized surfing trip involving a very protective wetsuit.

    Saturn’s wettest moon (Titan) is the only body that we know of in our solar system to have a liquid on it.But that liquid is not water it is in fact methane at a temperature of 290 degrees Fahrenheit it would would have to be a very special suit for us to swim in the methane sea for the pressure would crush us and kill us so maybe but it is most unlikely we will surf the waves of the methane sea of Titan,Saturn’s wettest moon!
