Artist Andy Gracie is attempting to breed a strain of fruit fly that could survive on Titan, Saturn's largest moon. The first stage of his work, The Quest for Drosophila Titanus, is part of an exhibition currently touring the UK.
"In May, the TiME project received a $3-million development contract from NASA. If the space agency green-lights the mission, the capsule will lift off in 2016. By 2023, TiME will be about 800 million miles away in Titan’s north-polar region, home to its biggest lakes and seas. The capsule will take photographs, collect meteorological data, measure depth, and analyze samples. TiME will have no means of propulsion once it is on Titan, so it will float, carried by breezes across the sea’s surface."
Concernant la photo de l'article : Je n'en suis pas certain mais il me semble que 1) Tel que Titan est située par rapport à Saturne, les anneaux de cette dernière ne seraient visibles que sur la tranche depuis la surface de Titan 2) l'atmosphère de la lune est tellement opaque qu'on ne verrait pas Saturne du tout, sauf en altitude...
Astrobiologist Chris McKay of NASA's Ames Research Center has hypothesized the presence of a "cryolife" in Titan. The organisms would breath hydrogen instead of oxygen, use acetylene in place of glucose, and exhale methane. This scenario could certainly explain some of Titans odd chemistry.
