What's Hiding Beneath The Surface Of Kraken Mare, Titan's Largest Sea?

The largest body of liquid on Saturn's moon Titan is the formidably named Kraken Mare, a sea of methane that sprawls some 400,000 km 2 across the moon's north polar region. Next week, NASA's Cassini spacecraft will perform a flyby of Titan in search of wave activity atop this colossal sea of hydrocarbon. » 9/18/14 3:20pm 9/18/14 3:20pm

Elric Of Melniboné Comes To Life In The Ultimate Comic Adaptation

If you're any kind of fan of Michael Moorcock or Elric, the dark fantasy antihero he created, you owe it to yourself to check out this new graphic novel adaptation.

​The original Snowpiercer comic is dystopian scifi at its best

Thanks to Harvey Weinstein, I have not seen Bong Joon-Ho's Snowpiercer movie yet, based on the 1982 French graphic novel La Transperceneige. But I have been able to read the comic, thanks to Titan, who will be releasing its first-ever English translation on January 28th.

You won't believe how amazing this footage of Saturn's moon Titan is

In 2005, an international team sent a probe called Huygens down to the surface of Saturn's moon Titan. This is a moon with a thick atmosphere, and which we now know has lakes, sand dunes, salt flats, and seasonal rains (of liquid methane).

NASA's bizarre Super Ball Bot could one day roll around Titan

We've seen some really unconventional robot designs in recent years, but NASA's highly conceptual Super Ball Bot takes the cake. Setting aside the constrained world of rigid robotics, this shape-changing machine would be driven by "tensegrity" technologies consisting of interlocking rods and cables. » 12/26/13 3:40pm 12/26/13 3:40pm

What if superpowers were a sexually transmitted disease… and fatal?

The characters of Titan's new comic Death Sentence are not heroes. They’re normal people who had unprotected sex, received superpowers, and will die in six months — and that’s the fantastic premise of Death Sentence #1, which you need to check out. Plus zombies attack Riverdale, The Walking Dead goes to war and more… » 10/08/13 4:20pm 10/08/13 4:20pm
