Scientists have learned a lot about Saturn's moon Titan thanks to NASA's Cassini spacecraft, which orbited the planet for well over a decade before NASA, and the ESA had to pull the plug in 2017. The mission was a massive success, and it's still yielding new discoveries today.
Titan, which is the only other world that we know of in our solar system that supports liquid on its surface, is well known for its colossal lakes that are filled with hydrocarbons, but it's the towering structures on the shores of those lakes that are the subject of a new research effort published in Nature Geoscience.
