3 Strange New Discoveries from Titan Suggest It’s Very Active

Vote for this video by social sharing!
Hello and welcome! My name is Anton and in this video, we will talk about new updates from Saturn’s moon Titan that suggest active volcanoes, missing lakes and that apparently it’s moving away from Saturn 100x faster than we thought.

    Hi Wondrous Human

  2. Bartłomiej Mazur

    You cut the image too much

  3. Fran Tabor

    It has been postulated that earth’s atmosphere is maintained at the triple point of water (on average, balanced liquid, gas and solid forms exist simultaneously) because of the balancing effects of life on a global scale. If long-term triple point stability is a reliable bio-signature, then Titan must have life. If it has scientists, those scientists undoubtedly believe complex water-based life is unlikely because of all known substances, only water expands when frozen—thus bursting cells that get too cold.

  4. David Levesque

    Water Ice, at that distance. Isn’t it amazingly brittle.
    I should check, but I thought Titan gets pulled back towards Saturn regularly after doing it’s drifting thing. Mr Petrov is looking more chipper lately.

  5. MC's Creations

    I don’t like Titan very much… A certain purple guy came from there. 😐

  6. gronagor

    Oops. That was a bad slip Anton. Huygens probe = ESA.

  7. Deep Recce

    Sorry Anton just clarify is Titans moving away at 0.1cm ( 2:48) or 11cm per year (4:00) ?

  8. Joseph Knurek

    11 centimeters per year in a 750k mile orbit, very fast? what is the margin of error of the measurement? :-)

  9. Andrew Blucher


  10. Leon Elmore

    If it didn’t have life before, think of all the Earth life that parachute had on it.

  11. El Ryan

    No you

  12. Joe Farar

    What’s with all the Coke shirts Anton?

  13. Boris Be loud us

    Titan must be pulled by Saturn at the equator causing the lake migration. Equatorial bulge

  15. Flavour Month

    imo we will not find an advanced alien race until we can forget how life forms as we know it.

  16. Justin Tremblay

    your channel is my 2020 discovery👌🏻 nice work

  17. cyclops centurion

    We need to colonize Titan so the smart people can get away from the democrats.

  18. Morton Thiockol

    Ok, now I want to visit Titan.

  19. Gregory Sullivan

    Being active meant something entirely different to apparently just me. I’m kinda upset that this dude uses lacking words to get clicks. I’d suggest better title’s. I wouldn’t have watched this knowing it didn’t have aliens.

  20. Michelle Peacock

    Jupiter is trying to steal Titan. That giant is picking on Saturn because his rings aren’t as beautiful. (Jk, Jupiter, we love you! Please don’t absorb us.)

  21. Darth Fakington

    Wasn’t it ESA that took the photos rather than Nasa as stated?

  22. Osmosis Jones

    Could a mars sized planet crossing a super puff have a cycle of gaining and losing atmosphere and could Gliesa 1241b be a medium Puff. I count Ploto as a Minny puff

  23. Ильдар Бикбаев


  24. yeme

    0:16 “actual footage that NASA was able to get…” The Huygens lander that took that footage of Titan was a European Space Agency vehicle, NASA built the Cassini orbiter it was paired with

  25. Sewer Man

    Bro that looks computerised af.Can we get like a heat resistant camera and take a REAL goddamn picture like you would a phone.maybie its too dark to see.I wish after i die i can leave my body and fly off into the universe to truly see all these wonders with my own dead eyes……I WISH

  26. Butch Cassidy

    We thought we thought we thought, I wonder how many mistakes you would find in scientific papers throughout the entire scientific community and I bet you would find that they make more mistakes and more arrows about their assumptions than actual findings! But yet they tell themselves that they know better than everyone else.

  27. Glenn Smith

    Very exciting discoveries, possible signs of life on two of Saturn’s moons. We have to send more probes to investigate.

  28. Gregory Kitchens

    Its the only other body in our system with liquid on the surface, yet we’re wasting resources on Mars and Saturn and our moon. I realize we’re going to need to be on the moon to eventually get to places like Mars or titan.

  29. Pixl Arts

    Hey, the pyramid ships are about to land on titan… Rip giant sea monster…

  30. Hrishikes Tadwalkar

    Thanks Anton :)


    So if titan was to get far enough away from Saturn will the title locking stop and will titan start to spin again

  32. Smokey McPot

    Subtitles become German :D

  33. Kenny Smith

    That low light would explain why grey’s have such big eyes ;)

  34. The B's Nest movies

    What cause the rocks there to be round edges, must have had flowing water at once

  35. James

    Hi! So why don’t gas planets have gas moons?

  36. Ellison Hamilton

    It would be fascinating to see the changes to Titan if it were moved much closer to the sun.

    Thanks Anton.

  37. zaraak323i

    11cm per Earth year, or Saturn year?

  38. Mr. Stuff

    Hehe my favorite moon too anton I love this video

  39. SundayRide Texas

    Love your videos. Staple to my drive home from work. <3 from Texas

  40. BlueRooster76

    what was the shadow on the ground coming from?

  41. phapnui

    Fascinating. Thank you.

  42. Gerard Virgona

    How does something that small keep such a thick atmosphere?

  43. Alexander Norman

    Yay! We’ll get another planet and be back to 9!

  44. Stan Szeto

    5:00 It is a good thing that your cursor is not shaped like the Enterprise. Or is that an Imperial Destroyer?

  45. mike bon

    Nice!!!! Keep it up Andre…!!!!! Good work to inform/teach the ‘normal’ people… Evryday a new scientific adventure….

  46. Magnetar 11:11

    Wonderful, yes! Person…mmmm, Sure! Thanks.

  47. john smith

    I was thinking the reflections might be from ice but not WATER ice.

  48. Susan Doerr

    i had a double decker swing for my children way up high in the fir i had to climb. and my swing now one shove and because rope is different lengths on each side cause of the upward tilt of the branch it swings by itself without me pumping or having to have someone push. really neat.

  49. ozymandias_NIK

    The CGI is going to be full blown evidence for the flat earth peeps. 🤣

  50. Darren Bauer

    Cassini just sounds great, doesn’t it? Like you just opened a soda or a cold beer on a hot day…

  51. Joe Arnold

    It’s aliums!

  52. Anthony Torres

    Not First!

  53. ian forde

    So the atmosphere is mostly methane. Strange that . I bet it stinks 🤣🤣

  54. nunya bisnass

    So you’re saying that on titan, we are made of lava.

  55. Saveursound4now

    Your the freaking man Anton,this channel is amazing 😎👊💪💎👽

  56. George Pupala

    Anton: How about Europa? At one time it was thought the best chance of finding life was there? — George —

  57. Anders Juel Jensen

    Hello wonderful Anton! Thanks for the update. Titan is truly fascinating.

  58. Nicholas Mills

    Titan. A moon of very cold hydrocarbons. No life here then.

  59. Kuntal Das

    Yeahhh more news about Titan. Thanks Anton :)

  60. Logical Musicman

    Is my screen ratio off, or are the captions outside of the frame?

  61. Relentless Resentment

    Titan may be able to accommodate life similar to Earth & vice versa. Very cool! But I’m 💯 positive that there is Lifeforms on other planets that wouldn’t be able to Live in an “Earth like” environment. ✌

  62. Smokey McPot

    tokes and cheers ,
    this was very informative , thank you :))

  63. Ya But

    Hi regular viewer here :) really love the effort you put into your research for your videos, but i think your intro could use a redesign I think it doesn’t fit to the quality of your content. I hope you know how i meant this anyway I‘ll keep watching :)

  64. Effat Siddiqui

    Titan is very cold. How can we warm it up so that we terraform the moon for human base ?

  65. Jose Santiago

    I love your short talks enough science for it to be good and understandable. Excellent job thank you

  66. Gregory Kitchens

    We knew for a fact it was only moving away 1 cm per year until we didnt.

  67. ChristophersMum

    Thank you Anton…this was really interesting…somethings I am learning for the first time…

  68. AdroitWaterBear

    Let’s go to AP’s favorite moon, Titan, “…and possibly make a colony or two.”. ! ! !

  69. James Ordner

    Even 1% the light we have is enough to see a lot.

  70. Duane

    That sight, while standing on Titan and looking up. Wow…

  71. Dindunuthingwrong

    5:53 Seems like a pretty big lake to the southeast of xanadu

  72. Brandon Ottosen

    Eyyy I got here before the flat earthers disliked

    17th like

  73. Adymn Sani

    good episode, thanks …I watched a Sci Fic movie years ago that involved changing humans genetically to enable them to live and work outside on Titan, and fly too…it was a bit disjointed but had an interesting story line,,,it ended with one hybrid succeeding to change without life ending damage…so the ending was kind of promising

  74. Rodney Leonard

    The end is a cartoon, animation. I’ve seen the real end; it’s weird.

  75. ye ye

    Would you like to take a road trip to titan?

  76. K Adnan

    Probably aliens

  77. Magnamic

    Anton, you’re such a brilliant person. Thank you being so wonderful.

  78. naponroy

    7 mins and 769 views… man, your fans are wonderfully fast!

  79. Curtis DeCoste

    Titans finally transforms right before our eyes, and says, “Titan, no I go by Cybertron, actually.”

  80. andrew worth

    I’m looking forward to relaxing in Titans hot pools.

  81. Dillon Hanson

    I need to become a patreon

  82. Kamisa

    That might explain why the rocks on Titan have smooth curved edges.

    Also, It would be cool if they could put a rover to titan.

  83. ActualAlien

    I’ve actually been on Titan. I can confirm it is very active, complete with rain

  84. Talpone

    Aaaah Titan. I love Titan.

  85. Baxter Powel

    i love news on Titan don’t know why i love this moon!

  86. She's my President

    How come Ganymede doesnt have a Atmosphere?

  87. Audrée

    Hello wonderful Anton 🙏🏼

  88. scuba Steve

    I’m really curious who disliked this video. They probably have the IQ less than 70.

  89. Ortherner

    Titan is my favorite Object in the Solar System!

  90. Silas Dense

    Always found titan a fascinating subject.
    I look forward to more explorations.
    I also look forward to your next video.
    As always, thank you 🙂

  91. Karla Kirkpatrick

    the wonderful person picture should be on stickers, I know the image perfect.

  92. Leafgreen1976

    I received my wonderful person shirt today :)

  93. Calico Wall

    “Tossing Ewoks into lakes of liquid farts” (to be read in a Geordie accent).

  94. Kep

    We need more missions to Titan

  95. Harden Patch

    Titan is such an interesting moon, and now it got even more interesting. I hope that the dragonfly mission tells us even more about this weird moon.

  96. The Charminx

    Titan might end up orbitting the sun between uranus ans saturn.

  97. Riley Robertson

    Sounds like a better chance of finding life on Titan than anywhere else in the solar system

  98. Brent Wilbur

    I propose that water and ice volcanoes be henceforth named “Aquanoes.”

  99. ritemoelaw_books83

    The lander was from the ESA. It hitched a ride on NASA’s vehicle.

  100. jesper the happy black ho

    saturn: are you actually trying to drift away from me, titan?!
    titan: no, not at all
    saturn: ……I saw THAT, you..you did it again
    titan: no, that was nothing [silently driftes away]
