Researchers at the DLR-Institut fur Planetenforschung in Berlin, after studing data from the Cassini probe, believe it rains on Titan, and that rain runs into rivers and into at least one large lake – of liquid ethane, a primary component of liquid natural gas.

Perhaps they will find other complex hydrocarbons on Titan…maybe if we can’t drill in ANWR, maybe we can at least drill there…
