The Cassini has found something unusual on the Titan
In new observations of the spacecraft of NASA Cassini unusual details in dunes of the moon of Saturn – the Titan have been found.

The images received by means of the SAR radar on July 25, 2016. During flight Cassini was in 976 kilometers over the surface of the moon. In southern latitudes of the Titan, in the region of Shangri-La Sand Sea, mysterious massive dunes which were never observed earlier on the satellite are found. The big dark area is speckled by hundreds of long strips of the sandy dunes consisting of granular hydrocarbons.

Dunes reach height more than 90 meters – above, than on Earth. In comparison with terrestrial hills the dunes of the Titan were huge.

Let's remind, the device Cassini will be the on the Titan in an orbit of Saturn a year more, and then will be lowered in the atmosphere of the giant planet for the last measurements.скачать dle 10.6фильмы бесплатно
