No lightning detected on Titan
Washington: It has emerged that lightning has not been detected on Saturn’s moon Titan.
Scientists have speculated that lightning on Saturn’s moon Titan could produce changes in atmospheric chemistry and could even spark production of organic compounds that could be precursors for evolution of life.
Extending previous searches for lightning on Titan, Fischer and Gurnett analyze radio data up to the 72nd close flyby of Titan by the Cassini spacecraft.
They find no evidence of lightning and conclude that if lightning occurs at all on Titan, it is probably a very rare event.
