With the help of the Cassini spacecraft, Nasa has received new data about that the surface of Titan, Saturn’s moon, was formed under the influence of weather and outside influences, such as meteor shower, and not as a result of volcanic activity.These data contradict the assumptions made ​​in December 2010 based on photos of Titan received from.

With these data, scientists find that in the Solar system is a unique appearance,  landscape  forms,  similar to terrestrial volcanoes,but erupting by ice.But now Nasa’s researchers find that the evidence, presented to date, is unconvincing and the existence of volcanoes on Titan is extremely unlikely.
