How Studying Saturn Moon Titan Could Unlock Secrets of Alien Planets

Studying the hazy atmosphere of Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, should help researchers better understand the air of faraway exoplanets, a new study reports.


It appears that many of the large number of exoplanets we have observed have a haze around them that hurts our ability to make good observations.

Now it appears that Titan has a similar sort of haze. So, gaining an understanding of how different wavelengths of light move through that haze is already giving us insights into the haze around exoplanets.
