(Princeton, NJ) - Dr. Jonathan I. Lunine, Professor of Planetary Sciences at the Lunar and Planetary Lab of the University of Arizona, will present a Special Science Lecture on Tuesday, February 27 at 8 PM in Peyton Hall for a special meeting of the AAAP. His talk is titled "Methane Lakes and Methane Rain on Titan: What it All Means". The public is invited. AAAP web site: http://www.princetonastronomy.org
He will discuss the remarkable discovery of liquid lakes on Saturnís exotic moon Titan. The scientific evidence confirming these lakes has just published on the "cover" of the journal "Nature" on 4 Jan 2007. Titan is the most Earth-like body in our Solar System. Methane plays the role of water on Earth, profoundly affecting the climate, weather systems, surface geology and tectonics.
