Huge waves on Titan move slowly

BBC Science, Dr David Whitehouse

Scientists have issued a weather forecast for the oily oceans of Titan, Saturn's major moon and a target for a space probe landing next year.

Researchers gathered at the UK National Astronomy Meeting have calculated how the moon's seas compare with Earth's.

Waves would be seven times higher than Earth waves but would move more slowly and be much farther apart, they think.
