Pondering an Ocean Beneath Titan

An underground ocean on Titan? The apparent detection of low frequency radio waves makes liquid water beneath the surface of the huge Saturnian moon a possibility, according to research led by Fernando Simoes (Centre d'Etudes Terrestres et Planetaires, Saint Maur, France). Simoes and team have been studying what New Scientist is describing as an 'enigmatic radio signal' that the European Space Agency's Huygens probe detected as it descended to Titan's surface in 2005.

An enigmatic radio signal from deep space? Who can resist that invitation?

Any sightings of a black monolith floating in space yet?

Not yet, but it's inevitable.
