+ - Clouds Revealed on Titan

sporkme writes "New images from Titan may reveal insight to the role of methane on Saturn's largest moon. From the article:

NASA's Cassini spacecraft captured the image of the 1,490-mile-diameter (2,400-kilometer-diameter) cloud on December 29, 2006. The cloud's presence fits predictions that Titan has a "methane cycle" similar to Earth's water cycle, with bodies of liquid methane evaporating and forming clouds that rain material back down on the surface.
Titan is the only moon that is known to have an atmosphere of significant composition, which in this case is almost entirely nitrogen. The cloud is about half the size of the United States, and the images are astounding."

You know, the difference between this company and the Titanic is that the Titanic had paying customers.
