A scientific probe recently landed on Titan, Saturn’s largest moon. Not only are pictures of the surface of Titan being beamed back to earth, but we can also listen to the response of one of the inhabitants of this distant world to the unexpected arrival of the probe. In this mp3 recording we can clearly hear the mounting consternation in the Titanian's voice as the probe descends, followed by his swift getaway in a Titanic space module. We are not yet sure what he is saying, but the first three letters - W,T and F - have already been decoded.
