Titan

Titan Saturn’s Largest Moon Exploration with latest news and photos about titan moon facts, life, surface, planet, temperature. Also covering titan atmosphere water ice nitrogen methane ethane clouds including Cassini–Huygens Mission photos.

  • Crescent Fluorescent Titan
    During the July 2, 2004 flyby of Titan, Cassini was able to look at this largest of Saturn's moon using different filters to give a view of the dividing lines between night and day, atmosphere and surface.

  • Titanic Purple Haze
    Cassini's camera captured a good view of the upper and lower atmosphere on Saturn's moon Titan. The moon has a thicker atmosphere than Earth's.

  • Mapping Titan
    Cassini's visible and infrared mapping spectrometer pierced the smog that enshrouds Titan. Dark regions of relatively pure water ice were found mixed with lighter regions of simple hydrocarbons.

  • Titan’s Strange Surface
    New images and spectroscopic data of the surface of Titan, Saturn's largest moon, have puzzled NASA scientists. Light areas once thought to be pure water ice are instead regions likely contaminated by organic materials.

  • Titanic Thinking in Pictures
    Robotic missions have returned images from the surfaces of Venus, Mars and even asteroids, but when the Huygens probe tries to capture topography from Saturn's largest moon, Titan, the landscape may rival science fiction in the descriptions of how exotic another world might look.

  • Titan’s True Colors
    The orange-brown color of Saturn's moon, Titan, shows in true hues with the latest Cassini closeup.

  • Titan's Weather Vane
    Gauging wind speeds on Titan depends on where in the thick atmosphere the probe tries to measure changes in direction or magnitude. What scientists see today is just the top, smoggy layer, but new benchmarks may arrive from an unlikely and smog-free place: the
