Saturn's moon Titan could be gone in tens of millions of years. Cassini mission has found a remarkable longevity to the hydrocarbon lakes on the moon's surface. Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, fed these results into a model that
The astronomers used the Keck Observatory's 10-meter telescope and its infrared spectrometer to study spectrum emissions from Saturn's upper atmosphere, which is also called the ionosphere...The extensive planetary ring system is composed of
The spacecraft is due to pass the moon in a few years' time but at a much greater distance. It is only scheduled to operate until 2017 and will not make another flyby of the moon before it disintegrates. Carolyn Porco, Cassini imaging team lead from
