Saturn moonsTitanIsSolar systemThe only satellite in the world with a dense atmosphere (nitrogen)methaneHave a circulation. It is also the only celestial body other than the Earth whose existence of a stable liquid has been clearly confirmed.
TitanLiquidmethaneIt has been confirmed that it is raining and the sea is present, but in the Arctic, “KrakenLiquid called “sea”methaneThere is the largest sea of this satellite made of ethane, ethane and nitrogen.
Research at Cornell UniversitygroupEstimated its depth, the deepest part near the center was unmeasurable, at least300MeterIt was speculated that there was more than that.
Reflected on the surface of the waterradarAnd reflected on the seabedradarIf you calculate the depth based on the time difference ofMalayThe depth of the cove is about 85MeterTurned out to be.
HoweverKrakenIt is said that the sea was too deep to confirm the reflection from the seabed.KrakenThe seawater of the seaMalayIf it has the same ingredients as the cove,100MeterThat is all.At the deepest point300MeterIt was speculated that there was.
furtherradarWas absorbed as it passed through the liquidenergyThe composition of seawater was inferred from the amount of seawater.
According to it, seawatermethaneIt is made up of 70%, 16% nitrogen and 14% ethane, and was found to be similar to the second largest Ligeia Sea.
KrakenIt has been thought that the ocean is very large and extends to lower latitudes, so it may have more ethane than other oceans. It seems surprising to researchers that they betrayed such expectations and were almost the same as other oceans.
This new fact isTitanWater systemmodelIt is said that it will be a clue to build.
TitanAbout the sea ofmethaneThere is a mystery as to where he came from.
