Saturn's largest moon Titan is the second largest moon in our solar system, second only to Jupiter's Ganymede, which is only 2 percent larger. Titan is bigger than Earth's moon, and even larger than the planet Mercury.

Radius: 2,575 KMs
Orbital Period: 15 days and 22 hours
Orbits: Saturn
Orbit Distance: 1.2 million KMs
Surface Temperature: -179°C
Discovered on: 25 March 1655 
Discovered by: Christiaan Huygens

Titan is the only moon in our solar system that has clouds and a dense atmosphere, mostly nitrogen and methane. It is also the only other place in the solar system known to have an earthlike cycle of liquids flowing across its surface.

Titan is tidally locked in synchronous rotation with Saturn, and permanently presents one face to the planet as it completes its orbit.

Cassini has revealed that Titan's surface is shaped by rivers and lakes of liquid ethane and methane (the main component of natural gas). These liquids form clouds from which the liquid gases sometimes rain from the sky as water does on Earth.

On Titan it is so cold that water plays the role of rock and lava, and flowing methane carves river channels and fills great lakes with liquid natural gas.

Titan is the only moon in the solar system with a thick atmosphere. Titan's atmospheric pressure is about 60 percent greater than Earth's -- roughly the same pressure found at the bottom of a swimming pool. Because Titan is less massive than Earth, its gravity doesn't hold onto its gaseous envelope as tightly, so the atmosphere extends to an altitude 10 times higher than Earth's - nearly 370 miles (600 km) into space.

Titan's atmosphere is mostly nitrogen and methane, with small amounts of other carbon-rich compounds. High in the atmosphere, methane and nitrogen molecules are split apart by the sun's ultraviolet light and high-energy particles accelerated by Saturn's magnetic field; the products of this splitting recombine to form a variety of organic molecules.

フルで活動できる最後の日は、
NASAのJPLの見学に。
一般のツアーで入ろうとしたけど
来年の1月まで埋まってて一度は諦めたものの、
奇跡的な最強の講演会のおかげで知り合えた
JPLの職員の方に個人的に
案内していただけることに。
そして、まあお互い口がまわるまわる笑
なんせお互い宇宙が好きなもので
私は情報を聞き出そうと質問攻めだし
そしたら一を聞いたら十を教えてくださるし
2時間+ランチの間に得られた情報量
半端じゃなかった笑
私普段から結構早口らしいんだけど
(最近指摘され続けて自覚出てきた)
かなりすごい経歴をお持ちの歳上の方にも
このハイパーハイペーストーク披露してしまった
いやだって同じ時間なら
言葉多く交わせたほうがいいじゃん的なノリ
そしていろいろ聞かせてもらったこととしては
例えば探査機についてとか、
あとは実際に火星ローバーの実験やってる
日本人の別の方がいらっしゃるんだけど
その方が実際に働いてる現場間近で見たりとか
まあとにかくいろんなもの見せていただいて
いろんなこと教えていただいて
最高に充実した1日だった
いやなんかもうここに書くと
一晩中かけても多分終わらないので
個人的に興味ある方は聞いてください笑
.
昨日は昨日で面白いこともあったし
今日も今日でまた別件で
言いたいことあるんだけど
早寝しないとやばいので
それはまた後日言うと思います笑
とりあえずLA帰ってきてからの二日間
濃すぎてやばい!笑
こんな人との縁を感じる機会が多いことなんて
もう滅多にないと思う笑
つくづく人との縁は恵まれてるなほんとに…
と思いました!笑
.
これ寝る前に書くもんじゃないな
ワクワクしすぎて
脳と身体が活発化してきた笑

May 8, I got a call saying that I got into Caltech. I spent the next three hours keep refreshing my email nervously for a confirmation letter because I thought it was a prank call. May 11, I have committed to caltech. I think I am ready. Even if I'm not, I really will work my hardest to be ready. So, everyone please wish me good luck.
Let's go #caltech #caltech2021
