New simulations say life unlikely to exist on Saturn’s moon Titan

Titan, a moon of Saturn is unique in 2 ways that have convinced some scientists that it might host extraterrestrial life: It’s the only moon in our solar system with a dense atmosphere and that has pools of liquid on its surface, in Titan’s case hydrocarbons. But new computer simulations indicate that they are unlikely to form lipids, thought to be a precursor to life. A mission is planned in 2030

We should go there and find out for sure.

Bummer. But it's still an interesting location.

Life or not, it has a SHIT TON of potential when it comes to computers. Fun fact, the colder the temperature is, the better computers can operate. And it's cold as hell on Titan. Furthermore, you can dump a lot if heat into that atmosphe re before it starts to warm up at all, so we could run some huge quantum computers on there.

Don't worry. Next week they'll say it's almost certain life is there.

Folks on Titan are laughing their asses off at this fake news story.
