Saturn’s Largest Moon, Titan, Should Be Our Next Stop, Says NASA

Titan is the largest moon of Saturn and it should become humanity’s next destination according to a NASA scientist.

Janelle Wellons is a NASA engineer and she said that we should consider settling on Titan just in case the Earth becomes inhabitable.

And we all know that we’re more or less slowly heading to extinction.

The woman also seems to have lots of reasons for which humans should consider this and one of them is the fact that we could be able to fly just using our own arms.

“[Titan] has a thick atmosphere that could help protect us from space radiation,” Wellons wrote on Reddit.

“It is so dense that we could actually attach wings to our arms and fly on this moon. I don’t know, it just seems like an awesome place to live.”

A Reddit appearance had people asking questions and NASA answered

During a recent Reddit appearance, NASA engineers, pilots and scientists received various questions from the public.

Wellon provided answers after a Redditor asked the team what should humans do when Earth becomes inhabitable and where should we go.

The largest moon of Saturn, Titan, is considered by Wellon to be the answer to that question. And that is a  more exciting answer than the standard Moon or Mars ones.

“How about we consider one of the water worlds in our solar system — Titan,” she wrote. “Titan is the largest moon of Saturn, larger than the planet Mercury even, so I think we could settle with plenty room,” Janelle Wellons added.

Other people such as Elon Musk are more fond of options such as Mars as you probably know by now.

Anyway, it’s not all just fun and games because Titan obviously has its own downsides. For instance, in comparison to earth, Titan one gets 1%n of the sunlight we can enjoy here and there are minus 292 degrees Fahrenheit as the maximum temperature, according to NASA’s research.
