I watched "How The Earth Made Us", and it showed how the methane rains in slow motion, hinting that water could have began the same way.
Does this mean that if life isn't already there, it could form the same way that the beings of Earth did?
This also makes me wonder, did other being's of our solar system watch as our planet was formed and their own decayed?
Titan is very intriguing. Titan’s atmosphere is made up of methane and nitrogen. Earth’s atmoshpere was actually similar to Titans before the Great Oxygenation Event occured here on Earth, so yes, Titan’s atmosphere could very well change.
Also, in 2006 there was study done at the University of Colorado that showed when sunlight reacts with Titan’s rich nitrogen and methane-filled atmosphere, organic compounds are created; this is extremely exciting! I mean, Titan has river channels of methane and there are dunes; it’s surface actually resembles ours once you penetrate the thick atmosphere. Only time will tell for the real possibility of life. Titan is in fact, very cold though, and there are aspects of it that don’t look promising. But…we are finding here on Earth that life thrives in all the unexpected places so I personally never count anywhere out. Life finds a way, and life seems like it could bery well be inevitable based on the chemistry, and the abundance of the elements spread throughout the entire cosmos. ”Intelligent life” is a different story. A lot of things have to go just right.
The planets in our solar system all formed relatively around the same time so I don’t think there was enough evolutionary time for other intelligent creatures to ponder the creation of any nearby planet. Besides, the distances are too vast.
I am, by no means, am an expert, and these are just my thoughts. Thanks for the question. I hoped I helped at least a little bit.
