In certain ways, Titan is the most hospitable extraterrestrial world within our solar system for human colonization. Saturn's unique moon Titan is one of several candidates for possible future colonization in the outer planets in the solar system.
On January 14, 2005, humans successfully achieved an incredible feat unsurpassed to date. The European Space Agency's (ESA) Huygens probe, a metal pie-plate looking device 1.3 metres in diameter, parachuted down onto Titan, the largest of Saturn's moons, and landed unscathed on its surface.
Thus, Titan could potentially harbor environments with conditions suitable for life—meaning both life as we know it (in the subsurface ocean) and life as we don't know it (in the hydrocarbon liquid on the surface).
To break it down, only Enceladus and Titan appear to be viable candidates for terraforming. However, in both cases, the process of turning them into habitable worlds where human beings could exist without the need for pressurized structures or protective suits would be a long and costly one.
The problem is you need to strip away 95% of the planet's mass. It's all that hydrogen and helium, and that's pretty much impossible. And almost completely impossible, is still very slightly completely possible. Jupiter is made of fuel.
Terraforming of planets like Pluto is unlikely and highly expensive, but not impossible. At least in the nearest 1000 years. But, if we think further away, it can become a reality. A more advanced civilization that had overpopulated all planets in its solar system would like to terraform even a colder one.
Remember the Titans, based on the true story of T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia. Jerry Bruckheimer and Walt Disney Pictures bought the script based on the fact that it is a true story, but much of the film‟s content is fictional.
Mars seems like a more plausible short-term prospect due mainly to its nearness, but Titan may ultimately be the more valuable long-term option due to its nitrogen and its radiation protection.
Of all the worlds in our solar system, only a few have atmospheres that would allow winged flight: Titan, Venus, Mars, Earth, and the outer gas planets. Aerodynamically, Titan is by far the best place to fly airplanes.
Europa's surface is blasted by radiation from Jupiter. That's a bad thing for life on the surface – it couldn't survive. But the radiation may create fuel for life in an ocean below the surface. The radiation splits apart water molecules (H2O, made of oxygen and hydrogen) in Europa's extremely tenuous atmosphere.
Humans can't breathe on Titan because there is no oxygen in Titan's atmosphere. Aside from the lack of oxygen in Titan's atmosphere, Titan's atmosphere is also too cold for humans to breathe without damaging themselves.
While Earth rain falls at about 20 miles per hour (9.2 meters per second), scientists have calculated that rain on Titan falls at about 3.5 miles per hour (1.6 meters per second), or about six times more slowly than Earth's rain.
Titan's lakes also contain some ethane, which boils at ~185 Kelvins at standard pressure. The effect this would have on atmospheric pressure depends on how fast Titan is warmed up. If it is warmed up very rapidly, then the methane and ethane would evaporate faster than the atmosphere is being lost to space.
Titan also has a presence of organic molecules that contain carbon and hydrogen, and that often include oxygen and other elements similar to what is found in Earth's atmosphere and that are essential for life.
NASA won't be sending a rover to Saturn's moon Titan in search of alien life. It's sending a Dragonfly. In many ways, Saturn's moon Titan is one of the more pleasant places you could take a stroll in our Solar System.
The day cycle on Titan lasts 15.9 Earth days, which is how long it takes Titan to orbit Saturn. Titan is tidally locked, so the same part of Titan always faces Saturn, and there is no separate "month" cycle.
When will the mission launch how long will it take to get to Titan? This mission would last about 14 years. It would take roughly seven years to get there, and then the same to get back, though well-timed gravity-assists either on the way there or back could reduce the total flight time to just 10 years.
though wrapping-up warm might be advisable. However, the real problem is distance, with Titan being roughly a billion miles from Earth.
All Titans were originally humans of a race of people called the Subjects of Ymir. Ymir Fritz was the first Titan, who became one after merging with a strange spine-like creature in a tree. Subjects of Ymir are all distantly related to her, connecting them to the paths which enables transformation.
While it's never been confirmed, the assumption is that Attack on Titan takes place in a fictional version of Europe, with the walled-in medieval cities of Germany a clear inspiration.
A terraformed Saturn showing the outer shell with super oceans and mega continents. Terraforming of Saturn seems impossible, but if it should become a habitable planet for humans, we would have to put a giant artificial surface with low altitudes, filling them with water oceans to support life.
This could be done by using orbital mirrors to focus sunlight onto the surface, by detonating thermonuclear devices on the surface, or colliding small asteroids harvested from the Main Belt onto the surface. This would result in Ceres' crust thawing and turning into a dense, water vapor-rich atmosphere.
Terraforming Neptune would be extremely difficult, requiring most of the atmosphere to be removed. Once the core is left, it would be given a new atmosphere using the oxygen from the water collected, nitrogen from the ammonia, and carbon dioxide using carbon from methane.
Cassini observations of Titan's atmosphere are revealing the mechanisms by which Titan's atmosphere is being lost to space. Titan has a weak cold trap which hangs onto only some of the atmospheric methane. Thus, most methane is not trapped through freezing in the atmosphere.
