Something on the smoothness of Titan’s hydrocarbon lakes

If you are interested, go here:

A discussion session on a suggestion of mine on how “azotosomes” might increase the viscosity and therefore flatness of the hydrocarbon lakes on Saturn’s moon Titan.



From “Organic Compounds in Titan’s Seas and Lakes.”
