Pictures taken Cassini, discovered a "cross" on Titan

Recent images taken NASA Cassini have opened new interesting details of the release of the mysterious moon of Saturn, including nearly rounded education with a giant cross on it and seashore of ancient seas.

New findings were studied by two research groups: the first dealt with a "cross", and the second - dried seas of Titan.

Scientists from the first group found that its origin must cross a strange geological process, similar to the processes taking place in the bread when the dough is rising from below breaks down the upper crust. Only in the case of Titan it is about rising from the depths of the satellite magma.

Another team studied the pictures Cassini, was able to show that there were hydrocarbons on Titan Sea not only in the north, but also in the southern hemisphere, as indicated by well-defined shore of ancient seas dried up.

The results of both studies were presented at the meeting of the Division Planetary Sciences of the American Astronomical Society, held in Reno, Nevada.
