Researchers Find Evidence of Early Earth Atmosphere
Researchers are claiming early earth to have had Titan like atmosphere only, which according to them, has now changed over the time.
Our solar system has many planets but researchers studied that Saturn‘s moon Titan has the most unique features in the entire solar system, which reflects many like serving properties like our planet earth.
Their studies show that Titan is not only the natural satellite that is boasting a significant life serving atmosphere but also its surface has numerous bodies of liquid that are sufficient to support similar water cycle processes as are existing on Earth.
Further signs are revealing that the Titan moon also has clouds, spring rains, and fog along with some signs showing the surface containing a lake (reflections are similar to the ones that are seen from above the North America’s Great Lakes.
The only and the most important difference that the researchers have noticed between our planet earth and Titan is that the Chilly moon has methane as its liquid (a carbon-based chemical, which is considered as a prime component of natural gas in our world).
Few researchers with the same base (i. e. Titan’s hydrocarbon haze) are trying to find out the reasons behind the occurrence of life on Earth.
The researchers have started claiming of finding evidences proving that early Earth had a very Titan-like atmosphere, to explain which, they said that ancient rocks when studied showed that there was scarcity of atmospheric oxygen on earth about 2.5 billion years ago, which by the time has improved to make today’s dry air contain 78 percent nitrogen and 21 percent oxygen for life.
"Besides the obvious importance for the evolution of the atmosphere, the role of aerosol formation is one of the most poorly understood components in the present day climate models”, explains Professor Mark Thiemens of San Diego.
