So, no longer can we have all those puritanical greenies whingeing at us because we use something “unnatural” like plastic.
You would expect to find plastic in your lunchbox, not on Saturn’s distant moon Titan.
But that’s exactly where Nasa has found an ingredient of plastic – the first time the chemical has been detected on another world.
The Cassini spacecraft found small amounts of propylene, a chemical used to make storage containers on Earth, in the atmosphere of Saturn’s largest moon Titan.
See? It’s as natural as that yurt knitted out of mung beans you’re wearing.
