I know no question is dumb, but this might be a first. Is it possible for a space probe to ignite the methane on Titan or the combustible atmosphere of any heavenly body? Thanks

Welcome to Space.com!!<br /><br />Certainly not on Titan.<br /><br />With no oxygen, it won't burn.<br /><br />Now if you bring in your own oxygen, then you can have some fun. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#000080"><em><font color="#000000">But the Krell forgot one thing John.
