Question:

Information about the Saturn Titan Lake highly volatile

A recent research has indicated that Saturn’s Titan has many lakes that have great number of hydrocarbons, which makes them highly volatile and increases their chances of combustion, in the presence of oxygen. I was wondering what will become of a human body if it is placed in a titan environment. As, human bodies are made-up of 70% water, which itself is made up of oxygen. Can you help me know, what will become, if this oxygen released from the human body came in contact with the hydrocarbons, in the presence of a spark or flame?

     For a planetary satellite, Titan has numerous exclusive characteristics, encompassing its large dimensions (it's the second biggest moon in the solar system) a broad and frigid air, and lagoons of methane and ethane.
    Titan connects Earth as the only other body in our solar scheme renowned to have fluid lagoons on the surface. NASA's Cassini orbiter verified that rank when it discerned Ontario Lacus, a 150-mile long hydrocarbon lagoon in Titan's South Polar Region.
    Today's forecast: possibility of methane drizzles in the west. Astronomers at the University of California, Berkeley, utilised near-infrared imaging to notice methane raining from the unchanging cloud cover over Titan's foremost countries, Xanadu. Since the clouds have about the identical moisture content as Earth's clouds, this entails the droplets on Titan are much more disperse out and have a smaller density in the air, which makes the clouds 'subvisible' and therefore hard to detect.
    Titan's broad air and weather characteristics make for a planetary body that resembles Earth particularly early Earth in numerous modes, though at much chilly temperatures. "One of the things that attract me about Titan is that it has a lot of the same circulation features as Earth, but done with completely different substances that work at different temperatures," said Ray Pierrehumbert, a professor in geophysical sciences at the University of Chicago.

    Well, you are quite imaginative, but unaware of some basic facts, you are also one of those people who are unaware of the chemical bonding of hydrogen and oxygen in water. These two elements, hydrogen and oxygen are closely bound to one another, hence not freely available to make chemical reactions with other things in their environment. Though there are couple of metals, which possess the power to dislodge the hydrogen atom from water and in return react with the oxygen. This can be true in case of iron rusts, when it comes in contact with the water. In case of hydrocarbons, there is no such force that holds the power to dislodge one hydrogen atom with another atom; even carbon atom is not capable to displace hydrogen from its place. You must have noticed that in earth’s environment, if you wet yourself with gasoline, you won’t catch fire, even in the presence of oxygen gas in the air, only a flame or spark will cause fire. Hope the matter is resolved.
