Titan, one of the most interesting objects in our Solar system, may have an ocean of water beneath its thick ice crust layer. Scientists say large deposits of water drastically increase the possibility of life on the moon.

Saturn’s largest moon Titan is one of the few objects in our system that can boast a true atmosphere. The moon also has developed a climate, with oceans and lakes of methane and ethane on its surface.

The results of the measurements obtained by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, which passed Titan six times between 2004-2011, made a group of scientists at Italy's Università La Sapienza in Rome believe that the moon possess not just liquid hydrocarbons, but water as well.
