ISTR that there was some puzzlement about Titan's eccentricity being higher (or lower) than expected, possibly because of its internal structure and how that dissipates tidal friction. Does anyone know if this new model solves that problem?

It is on youtube and was delivered by Dr. Jeff Moore at the SETI institute in Northern California. Dr. Moore is a researcher from NASA Ames. It was posted on youtube on April 22, 2010
