Sunlight reflected off the surface of Titan’s seas for the first time last week. The satellite orbiting Saturn is covered in varyingly deep seas of hydrocarbons making the chances of some kind of primordial life existing much higher than on many other bodies in our solar system. Even though the average temperature is -170 degrees Celsius, the area has all the requirements for carbon based life. What are the implications of this? Could there be life based on a body so much colder than our own?
