Is TITAN ,Saturn’s moon a world full of rivers & lakes, possibly has Life ?
Most of the “earth like” planets we have detected do not have moons as far as we know, and most of them are either tidally locked, too hot, too cold, too dry, too big, too small, too wet or any number of other significant problems. This is still the only sample we have, and therefore what it makes the most sense to look for.So,This means that Life Could Synthesize In Any Environment of Atmosphere or Any Landscape !! Such as If A Life Form Lives on Titan !!
We know that life needs energy and we have two types of energy:a Sunlight and chemicals (H2+CO2=CH4+H2O ) ,carbon ,liquid water and other elements like:Nitrogen ,phosphorus and sulphur.The key of distribution on Earth is liquid water ,so the same way some other planet or moon needs some kind of liquid in which some “life chemistry “ may happened.Mars,Europe and Enceladus are also liquid worlds!Europe has water under ice.
I’m not saying that microbial life in Titan wouldn’t be exciting, but I still think it’s a bit of stretch to compare it to earth life in terms of rarity and level of excitement. At least until we’ve actually found it. Judging by the exos we’ve found so far, earth seems to indeed be rare, even if worlds like Titan and Europa are not.
But Titan has methane and that probably means that there is a different kind of life ,out of our Tree of life.Titan, Saturn’s largest satellite, is the only moon with a thick atmosphere. An Alien life can exist there,and accepting its thick atmosphere of Methane.But also, comparing to Earth ,Titan got similar gravity and size likes Earth’s moon.Titan’s atmosphere is similar to Earth’s when life arose here 3.5 billion years ago.
After is the only world with Nitrogen atmosphere ,with clouds and rains ,a completely similar hydrological cycle like Earth.The big differences is that instead water Titans liquid is Methane,and the temperature is mines 150 centigrade. Alien it would be possible that they have adapted to those Environment Conditions Such as -150 Degrees Celsius!Titan is a cold twin of the Earth, with liquid methane playing the same role there as water plays on our planet.
Life on Earth is based on liquid water; could there be life on Titan based on liquid methane? Carbon life requires liquid water to “function”. If there is life on Titan, it would probably be using liquid methane instead of water and some other element(or combination of elements) to act as carbon does in our kind of life.What if there were this alien world, with its lakes, its rivers, and its rocks made of methane.The element that can replace carbon might be water, since water on the Titanian environment behaves like silicon(silicon which is a close friend to carbon) does here on earth.!
Of course there is life there but, but of course there is life not life as we know it on Earth.Considering that nothing is alien, if it’s biochemically different ,I’ll be more interested in how to evolve to get to that state.So,I’d like to find how they’ve evolved.I will feel like a dinosaur who found a human!
It is possible that geo locking the Earth instantly would successfully wipe life out because of the extreme new weather that would cause as one side froze solid and the other evaporated in the heat. Even with the planet full of life at the beginning it might not be able to survive that. And if that spin came from the hypothesized Theia impact, along with the moon and possibly plate tectonics, it might be almost impossibly rare all on its own. Certainly if the angle of the impact, relative mass etc thats same rules matters,and theories ,we have to follow about Titan,and life there.
I believe alien should mean pre, or after our understanding of our own evolution in the universe considering our understanding of TIME, which also means, we should treat time only as a particle, that helps us measure their own evolution.
In Greek mythology Life there belongs to the giant humanoids beings named ‘The Ring makers of Saturn’ or the ‘Saturnians’ We have now one NASA planned called “Dragonfly.” Dragonfly is scheduled to arrive there in 2027.
