I was just looking at ethane lakes of Titan. They have rivers running to them. It rains ethane and methane on Titan. Do you think there are fish living in these lakes and rivers? If you put them in a frying pan, would they explode?
Just a JOKE dudes....a JOKE....
One place In the System you would not
want to be caught with OXYGEN.
Hehe...wonder what would happen if you had a tank of o2 like a Bernzomatic torch on Titan. It'd make for an odd flame.
Oxygen available as water ice there, apparently.
Here on Earth we are traveling to sugar/enzyme power perhaps. A new version of 'bio' fuel' for some transportation as well, eventually?
We won't need the fish on Earth, just a cane field and a chemistry set?
This is even more appropriate to Mars and Titan research.
Use of a microbe in an anaerobic system for electrical generation and indirectly for sustained growth or reproduction of the microbes over time in the process. A medium is still present with bound organics, but
"When the medium was replaced with an anaerobic buffer lacking nutrients required for growth, acetate-dependent electrical current production was unaffected and cells attached to these electrodes continued to generate electrical current for weeks. This represents the first report of microbial electricity production solely by cells attached to an electrode."
The link at reply #4 gives a non-natural enzyme process synthetic pathway, whereas this article shows growth in an anaerobic system with successful progression of energy production by natural microbial processes or attendant chemical progressions inherent in the system. No description of the sunlight or temperature range potential for the system.
Where on Mars would we find acetates for fueling microbes?
This paper claims dry lake beds reported over just a few years observation timing, and I remember checking the very dark imaged lake beds a few times when the initial images were produced, and found continuation of the terrain details across the lake beds, showing no deposition of sediment obscuring the 'lake bottoms'. The effect may be related to the radar penetration potential through any sediment to differing more solid material, but I don't know the facts of that possibility.
My recent entries are not all appearing in the blog currently.
A late addition to details we have spread between topics, such as what I thought was a volcano on Titan erupting on a rim and slope. This may have been that same structure, but the discussed locations are referred to as 'small lakes'. The suggestion also is that the active component was nitrogen not ethane or methane.
