Webster Dictionary

  1. Titan(adj)



  1. Titan

    In Greek mythology, the Titans were a primeval race of powerful deities, descendants of Gaia and Uranus, that ruled during the legendary Golden Age. They were immortal beings of incredible strength and stamina and were also the first pantheon of Greek gods and goddesses. In the first generation of twelve Titans, the males were Oceanus, Hyperion, Coeus, Cronus, Crius, and Iapetus and the females - the Titanesses - were Mnemosyne, Tethys, Theia, Phoebe, Rhea and Themis. The second generation of Titans consisted of Hyperion's children Eos, Helios, and Selene; Coeus's daughters Leto and Asteria; Iapetus's children Atlas, Prometheus, Epimetheus, and Menoetius; Oceanus' daughter Metis; and Crius's sons Astraeus, Pallas, and Perses. The Titans were overthrown by a race of younger gods, the Olympians, in the Titanomachy. This represented a mythological paradigm shift that the Greeks may have borrowed from the Ancient Near East.

  1. Rajani Dhingra:

    SCIENTISTS HAVE FOUND THE BUILDING BLOCKS FOR LIFE ON SATURNS MOON ENCELADUS Dhingra added that the scientific community had been in search of clouds and rains on the north pole of Titan, but had yet to see any, despite what their models suggested.

  2. Kelly Miller:

    Because Titan is the only moon in our solar system with a substantial atmosphere, scientists have wondered for a long time what its source was, the main theory has been that ammonia ice from comets was converted, by impacts or photochemistry, into nitrogen to form Titans atmosphere. While that may still be an important process, it neglects the effects of what we now know is a very substantial portion of comets: complex organic material.

  3. Tyler Robinson:

    For the worlds where our current best explanation for their flat spectra is a planet-wide haze layer, though, our observations show that Titan's haze isn't a good analogy for whatever makes up the haze on these distant worlds, some other kind of haze, with different properties for interacting with light, could explain the flat spectrum.
