Is there oil in other planets?Oil. No one is sure how it was formed. There are count less theories. But two of them are the most prominent. One theory suggests that oil has always been here. The other theory suggests,as you all know,formation of oil by biomass decomposition.
The second theory is more widely accepted, because we have been making oil from plants and animals from a long time. Sure, decomposition of organic matter under high pressures and temperature causes formation of crude and natural gas.
The perfect example of life after death.
When marine organisms,micro organisms, prehistoric animals, plant and vegetation matter decomposes under favourable conditions, oil must be formed right? But what about planets where there is no life. Saturn's moon, Titan has more oil than earth, though the size difference is very large.
There are literally lakes and oceans in Titan filled with oil and natural gas.
Looks like there's an eternal supply of gas, because methane escapes in atmosphere and being a greenhouse gas heats up the moon. This heat vaporize the oil and hydrocarbon clouds are formed.
Hence, it rains oil in Titan. Well, there are huge traces of oil in Venus too.
But guess what? There's never been life in Titan and Venus.(as of now we can assume). Then what must have decomposed to form oil there? Looks like theory one was right all along .
Every planet must be inherently possessing oil.
Then oil becomes a renewable energy right?
