how about some early interpretations of the hyugens pictures

i have seen some in the links of the topic below, however nothing is really clear
is there any sign of liquids in the surface?
will this be posible to determine with the data retrieved?

it was expected the probe would land on the darker regions were the oceans were supposed to be, but it landed in a solid surface instead
what this means? the probe didn landed in the darker region? or the dark region is that? just a boring solid surface with some icy blocks?

Panda's Thumb posted a discussion about some of the early opinions on the findings. The dark stuff appears to be some kind of spongy substance with a crusty surface and not a liquid ocean.

one good thing for sure is that Huygens didn't return any pictures that had "shadows" or "faces".

at least those people won't be involved in this one. but they always try to find a way to prove a government alien coverup :lol:
