NASA Discovers “Very Weird” Molecule in Titan’s Atmosphere



The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) announced that they discovered a “strange molecule” in the atmosphere of Saturn’s moon Titan

According to the statement published on the official website of NASA, in the atmosphere of Titan, Saturn’s largest moon, “Cyclopropenylidene” molecule encoded as C3H2, which has not been discovered in any other atmosphere before, was found.

NASA researchers said they believe the new molecule they found as a result of their observations with the radio telescope named ALMA in the northern part of Chile could help determine whether there is life on Titan on Earth similar to that on Earth.

“Titan is unique in our Solar System. The discovery of C3H2 proved it to be a treasure trove of new molecules,” said planetary scientist Conor Nixon at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. used the expression.

Titan, the largest of Saturn’s 62 moons, differs from other moons in the Solar System in that it has a thick atmosphere that is 4 times denser than Earth’s.

Scientists believe that thanks to this atmosphere, Titan could have a life-form similar to that of Earth, where it rains, lakes, rivers, and even underground salty oceans.
