The International Space mission that sent the Cassini-Huygens craft to Saturn’s moon Titan has revealed similarities between it and Earth.

Environmental conditions reveal a “planet” that could be very similar to prehistoric Earth. According to Time.com,

If Titan is a chemical cousin of Earth, it’s an Earth gone terribly wrong. The surface is etched with riverbeds and shorelines carved by the methane rains. The ground seems to be a thin, frozen crust over a smoother, softer layer. “Kind of a creme brulee consistency,” says John Zarnecki, a principal science investigator. The atmosphere produces plenty of wind and weather, and there is even a flicker of a greenhouse effect, but with sunlight a thousand times dimmer than on Earth, it doesn’t amount to much.

Scientists will have all the time they need to tease out richer science from the data that Huygens left them.
