The rivers, lakes, and oceans have been seen near Titan, the largest moon of Saturn, as are on Earth. Saturn has 82 moons and while features of the planet Earth have been observed on Titan, the largest moon, it is also being speculated that the other moons of Saturn may have an Earth-like atmosphere.
You must have heard that planets similar to Earth, which can become habitable places for humans, are called Goldilocks Zone in the context of space.
A team of researchers from Stanford University has discovered that the presence of landscapes on the surface of Titan Moon is due to the global sand cycle driven by different seasons.
In other words, the process of formation of sand dunes on Titan has been linked to the process of formation of sand dunes on Earth. It has been reported that the lakes, rivers, and oceans of Saturn’s moon Titan have been filled due to rain and this rain has been due to the thick atmosphere there.
Research states that hydrocarbon sand dunes on Titan are composed of nitrogen winds and Titan’s icy surface is made up of streaks of liquid methane streams.
More than 5,000 exoplanets have been discovered in the Milky Way so far, most of which have been discovered by NASA’s Kepler telescope. Now China has planned to search for Earth 2.0. China has also decided to launch Earth 2.0 mission. For this, China is also planning to send a spacecraft by long march rocket by the end of 2026.
According to the Nature journal, the Chinese Academy of Sciences has given the concept of Earth 2.0 and China has named its mission as well. Earth 2.0 satellite has been designed in such a way that it will carry seven telescopes in space and monitor the entire sky for 4 years.
Out of this, 6 telescopes will survey the Cygnus-Lyra constellations. It will search for exoplanets like NASA’s Kepler mission. Along with this, China claims that its Earth 2.0 satellite is 1015 times more powerful than NASA’s Kepler telescope in terms of sky-surveying capability.
Earth’s twin planet found! Will humans be able to live here? Can Humans Inhabit This Super-Earth?
