- The satellite is moving away from Saturn 100 times faster than expected.
- Titan is drifting away at around 10 centimeters per year.
- The findings were obtained by two methods: investigating Titan's position relative to the stars and by investigating Titan's gravitational pull.
- This discovery suggests that Saturn's moon system formed more recently than previously thought.
