Ocean on Titan

In the Thursday’s issue of the journal Science, scientists has published an amazing finding about Titan, the moon of planet Saturn. They have discovered evidence that there is a hidden ocean of water below the surface of the giant moon.

Scientists are supporting their assertions on evidence they have acquired from analyzing radar images and other information about Titan, sent by NASA's Cassini spacecraft.

Based on the winds in the atmosphere of Titan, scientists have been able to figure out that a ocean of liquid water could actually be around 60 miles below the surface. This finding would surely start a major study into whether the ocean could support life.
