Titan - NASA Visions of the Future

Titan is a frigid and alien moon similar to our own planet billions of years ago.

Saturn's largest moon, Titan, has a thick atmosphere with organic-rich chemistry. Its surface is shaped by rivers and lakes of liquid ethane and methane. Cold winds sculpt vast regions of hydrocarbon-rich dunes. There may even be cryovolcanoes of cold liquid water. NASA's Cassini orbiter was designed to see through the ever present haze of Titan to unravel the mysteries of this planet-like moon.
