I have a theory that economics is fundamentally a more powerful force than physics. That is to say, no matter what the people of any one era believe is physically impossible, if it is also lucrative enough, somebody will end up doing it anyway.
Bonus points if they play music from Gurren Lagann while doing it.
Re Titan: "The findings, recently published online in Geophysical Research Letters, also indicate that the solid terrain surrounding the sea is likely made of solid organic materials and not frozen water."
Way to drop a tantalizing hint. Those seas are made of mostly methane, am I right?
“Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.”
Try this. We're discussing episode 2 right now.
I wonder if a species that evolved on Titan could ever make its way to the land. It's pretty far from the sun so it wouldn't get a lot of light and Saturn would block it off entirely at times. That would leave petrothermal vents as the primary source of energy which makes anything living too far from them unlikely from what I know. If I'm wrong on this feel free to correct me.
