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.

  1. 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!
