What is Titan?
Titan, the largest moon of Saturn, is the second-largest moon in the Solar System, following Ganymede, is often described as a planet-like moon. It’s the only object in space besides Earth where evidence of stable surface liquid has been found. However, Titan would certainly not be habitable, as it receives only 0.1% of the amount of surface-light Earth does (due to a very thick atmosphere), and a thick atmospheric haze reflects significant sunlight back into space. Titan’s surface temperature is about -290°F! (-179.2°C)
Of course, in Greek mythology, Saturn is one of the Titans, which is how this clue tonight gets its wording!
