Saturn’s moon Titan is largely covered in organic material, new evidence shows

Titan’s geology is dependent on latitude. At the equator, young dune fields dominate while lakes can be found at the poles.

But the most prominent feature of Titan is intriguing to scientists: organic plains.

The moon’s methane cycle is the driver of its geology — at the poles, humidity helps methane remain in its liquid state. Around the equator, a more arid climate allows dunes sculpted by wind to remain intact.
