Titanic Mountains


A massive mountain range has been imaged on Titan by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft.   The range is about 150 kilometers long (93 miles) and 30 kilometers (19 miles) wide and about 1.5 kilometers (nearly a mile) high. Deposits ofbright, white material, which may be methane “snow” or exposures of some other organic material, lie at the top of the mountain ridges.
