Saturn’s weird moon Titan looks a bit like Earth, and scientists might finally know why

The surface of Saturn’s moon Titan looks a bit like Earth and a new study finally explains why.

Saturn’s largest moon Titan features some very Earth-like landscapes: lakes and rivers, labyrinthine canyons, and soft sand dunes. However, these geological formations on Titan are made of entirely different materials. Instead of water, it’s liquid methane that flows through rivers, and instead of sand, it’s hydrocarbons that blow into dunes.
