Methane flows on Titan

Methane flows on Titan

Fig. 2.16 . This image was taken from the Huygens Probe just before it landed on the surface of Saturnís large satellite Titan on 14 January 2005. It shows flows down a high ridge into a major river channel from different sources. The feature has been attributed to liquid methane fed by the fall of methane rain. (Courtesy of NASA/JPL/ESA/U.
