The sound of one Titan waterfall splashing

Some may assume that he has way too much time on his hands; others may applaud his sense of wonder. Either way, Professor Tim Leighton took the initiative to work out what a methanefall on Titan would sound like, based on what we already know about Titan's gravity and atmosphere. (Since Titan's average temperature is so cold that water exists only in its solid state, and the temperatures hover around the triple point of methane, Titan can't have waterfalls...unless you're talking about cliffs of ice collapsing, and that's not the same thing.)

That guy has way too much spare time on his hands.
