Lakefront Property Available On Saturn's Moon

Really. Lakes have been spotted on Saturn's largest moon, Titan by the Cassini Spacecraft.

But before you call your real estate agent be aware that the lakes are not water but methane, the stuff you cook with. And these lakes would be even chillier than Minnesota's, almost 300 degree below zero.

Titan has long intrigued space scientists, as it is the only moon in the Solar System to have a dense atmosphere - and its atmosphere, like Earth's, mainly comprises nitrogen. They believe the lakes prove that Titan has a "methane cycle" - a system that is like the water cycle on Earth, in which the liquid evaporates, cools and condenses and then falls as rain, replenishing the surface liquid.

What a vacation spot!-- poisonous, frozen lakes and rain to boot.
