Titan’s Oil Resources

‘Scientists have discovered immense oil resources in Titan, which is a moon of Saturn. The oil reserve of Titan is estimated to be several hundred times greater than that of earth. [..]

Titan has several hundreds times more liquid hydrocarbons than all the available oil and natural gas reserves on Earth, said the European Space Agency (ESA).

In Titan, the ethane and methane falls from the sky in the form of rain, forming massive lakes and seas. It is believed that complex organic molecules called tholins are responsible for Titanโ€™s oily dunes, said the ESA.

“Titan is just enclosed in a carbon covered material. It is a giant factory of organic chemicals,” said scientist Ralph Lorenz.’

    [grin] ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s a good plan. If you gonna waste billions on a moon base, why not waste a bit more on a Titan base? ๐Ÿ™‚

    It would be a good refueling spot for interstellar travel in any case.
