New research by NASA scientists reveals that one of the moons of Saturn, Titan, looks more like the Earth than any other body in the solar system.
Their research was based on analysis of data sent back from the Cassini space probe.
It shows that Titan has mountain ranges, dunes, numerous lakes, and possibly volcanoes, which are all features that make its surface strikingly similar to Earth.
Titan is 10 times further away from the Sun than Earth.
It is much colder and has no liquid water.
But other chemicals such as methane and ethane have taken the place of liquid water, which falls as rain or snow to form lakes and enables the moon to have weather systems similar to those of Earth.
