Millions of dead dinosaurs on Titan?

Do we really think there were dinosaurs on Titan? Not really. Do we really think there were vast forests and enough plant material to form those hundreds of vast lakes of hydrocarbons on Titan, each containing more hydrocarbon liquid than Earth’s oil and gas reserves? No.

However, Titan is awash with covered with hydrocarbons.

Here are direct quotes from NASA:

“Saturn’s orange moon Titan has hundreds of times more liquid hydrocarbons than all the known oil and natural gas reserves on Earth, according to new data from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft. The hydrocarbons rain from the sky, collecting in vast deposits that form lakes and dunes.

“The new findings from the study led by Ralph Lorenz, Cassini radar team member from the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel, Md., are reported in the 29 Jan 2008 issue of the Geophysical Research Letters.

“Cassini has mapped about 20 percent of Titan’s surface with radar. Several hundred lakes and seas have been observed, with each of several dozen estimated to contain more hydrocarbon liquid than Earth’s oil and gas reserves. The dark dunes that run along the equator contain a volume of organics several hundred times larger than Earth’s coal reserves.”

Do we really think there were dinosaurs on Titan? Not really.

Do we really think there were vast forests and enough plant material to form those hundreds of vast lakes of hydrocarbons on Titan, each containing more hydrocarbon liquid than Earth’s oil and gas reserves? Not really.

So how did those vast lakes of hydrocarbons get there?

They rained from the sky, and we’ve known it for years. Carl Sagan knew it, and he died in 1996.

Hydrocarbons and nitriles constantly rain down from Titan’s skies, said Sagan.

Same on Jupiter.

And maybe on Venus.
