Scientists from Cornell University, led by Jonathan Lunine, reported that on Titan, a Moon of Saturn, they discovered a hydrocarbon ice floes based on a fluctuations in the reflectivity of the surface of lakes on Titan. As reported by scientists from Cornell University, sometimes the surface of Titan lakes looked darker and sometimes brighter in the radio, so the group "Cassini" linked the presence of such fluctuations of the reflectivity with the melting and the growth of ice on the lakes on Titan's surface. Scientists believe, that the ice can remain on the surface of methane-ethane lakes on Titan's surface if the temperature on the surface just below the freezing point of methane (90.4 Kelvin), and if the temperature drops a few degrees, the ice begins to sink, THE VIDEO:
