Water on Titan!


Look What They Found on Saturn's Moons!

The radar image is unmistakable: A shoreline with bays and channels feeding into what looks like a sea. What makes this so exciting is the "sea" is on a moon of Saturn and is the first sea discovered on any surface other than Earth's.

Space.com and New Scientist report that a new image from the Cassini spacecraft, which is circling Saturn and its moons and sending back images to eager NASA scientists, appears to show a sea made of liquid methane or other hydrocarbons that could very well harbor life right now.

"This radar data is among the most telling evidence so far for a shoreline," Steve Wall, radar deputy team leader from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., told Space.com. The image shows a distinct division between a bright, rough region and a dark, smooth area. "This is the area where liquid or a wet surface has most likely been present, now or in the recent past," Wall said. "Titan probably has episodic periods of rainfall or massive seepages of liquid from the ground."

Cassini has been busy. The spacecraft has also found water on one of Saturn's tiniest moons. The Washington Post reports that Cassini found a cloud of water vapor venting from fissures on the south pole of the Saturn moon Enceladus, which is only 310 miles in diameter. Planetary scientist Robert H. Brown of the University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory freely admits scientists have no clue why there is water on this moon in this particular spot and how something so small could have liquid water. Brown told the Post that the discovery of water vapor at Enceladus is "one of the most important things ever to come out of planetary science." Cassini has also shown scientists that Enceladus has active volcanism. The escaping gas is composed of water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane and possibly nitrogen.

Fetus Found in Belly of 7-Month-Old Baby

A seven-month-old baby boy in Vietnam has survived a delicate operation conducted by four surgeons on Monday to remove a nearly fully-developed fetus from his abdomen, reports News24.com.

A spokesman for Ho Chi Minh City's Pediatric Hospital said the 14-oz. fetus was "considerably developed with its face, legs and arms, and backbone and pelvis." The fetus was the boy's twin brother.

This extremely rare phenomenon has a medical name: fetus in fetu. In May 2003, surgeons at Chimkent Children's Hospital in Kazakhstan removed a dead fetus lodged inside a 7-year-old boy's stomach, reports the BBC News. Although the fetus, which was the boy's conjoined twin, developed into a tumor, it still had hair, nails and bones. Something had gone wrong during his mother's pregnancy, and the baby grew inside his brother. Although the fetus was not living, it did feed off the boy's blood supply. If it were not removed, it could have threatened his life. In August 2002, a 6-month-old infant boy in Calcutta, India had surgery to remove a dead fetus lodged within his body. In this case, the imperfect fetus weighed 2.2 pounds.

Stupid News


BRUSSELS (Reuters) - An inebriated Belgian woman died in a freak accident when she ended up beneath a heavy grave stone at a cemetery, local news agency Belga said Wednesday.
The 33-year-old was on her way home from a bar in the Belgian town of Pulle in the early hours of Saturday when she took a short cut through the cemetery.
But she urgently needed to relieve herself and crouched down between two gravestones. As she lost her balance, she grabbed one of the stones which gave way and landed on top of her.
The public prosecutor's office said she died of suffocation as she was unable to lift the heavy stone.
