en years ago, an explorer from Earth parachuted into the haze of an alien moon toward an uncertain fate. After a gentle descent lasting more than two hours, it landed with a thud on a frigid floodplain, surrounded by icy cobblestones. With this feat, the Huygens probe accomplished humanity's first landing on a moon in the outer solar system. Huygens was safely on Titan, the largest moon of Saturn.

Ten Years Ago, Huygens Probe Lands on Surface of Titan - On January 14, 2005, the Huygens probe captured these images during its 2-hour descent. The images are flattened (Mercator) projections of the view from the descent imager / spectral radiometer on the probe as it landed. The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Italian Space Agency
These images of Saturn's moon Titan were taken on Jan. 14, 2005 by the Huygens probe at four different altitudes. The images are a flattened (Mercator) projection of the view from the descent imager/spectral radiometer on the probe as it landed on Titan's surface.

This is the surface of one of Saturn's moons named Titan. It is the largest moon in the solar system, and it the only moon in the solar system with an atmosphere
This poster shows a flattened (Mercator) projection of the view from the descent imager/spectral radiometer on the European Space Agency's Huygens probe at four different altitudes. The images were taken on Jan. 14, 2005. The Huygens probe was delivered to Saturn's moon Titan by the Cassini spacecraft, which is managed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. NASA supplied two instruments on the probe, the descent spectral radiometer and the gas chromatograph mass spectrometer.

#Astronomy: The facts about #Titan's heavy atmosphere, lakes of hydrocarbons and the possibility of life. Discovered in the year 1655, Titan is the largest of Saturn’s 62 charted moons. Titan is the only moon in the solar system with a dense atmosphere and stable bodies of liquid on its surface. The environment on Titan is deadly to human life, with a toxic atmosphere consisting mostly of nitrogen and methane. The surface temperature is minus 290 degrees F (minus 179 degrees C). #Infographic

The surface of Titan as seen by the Cassini-Huygens probe. Titan is the biggest of the 53 known moons orbiting Saturn. The atmosphere is largely composed of nitrogen; minor components lead to the formation of methane and ethane clouds and nitrogen-rich organic smog. The climate creates surface features similar to those of Earth, such as sand dunes, rivers, lakes and seas
Shot from Titans surface. I took 14 years of planning, 7 years of flight, and 1 badass probe. Amazing.

titan - largest of saturn's moons ~ large areas of the surface are covered with sand dunes made of hydrocarbon, dunes there resemble a desert & because methane exists as a liquid on titan, it also evaporates, forming clouds, which occasionally causes methane rain, clouds of methane ice + cyanide gas float over the moon's surface, titan has no magnetic field

A methane drop was pictured condensed on the surface of Huygens probe after it landed on Titan in 2005. Like Earth, Titan has clouds, lakes and river channels, and it may be the only other place in the solar system where liquid evaporates from the surface and returns as rain. "Aside from Earth, it’s the most exciting world there is," says lead author Erich Karkoschka of the University of Arizona in Tucson.

During the saturn tour, the spacecraft will complete 74 orbits of the ringed planet, 44 close flybys of the mysterious moon Titan, and numerous flybys of Saturn's other icy moons. Description from wwwvims.lpl.arizona.edu. I searched for this on bing.com/images
Cassini used its infrared camera to take pictures of the surface of Titan from orbit. We now know that the surface is rocky with lakes of methane and ethane, and bright spots that mark the locations of freezing cryovolcanoes
The clouds that make Titan featureless in visible light have now been pierced several times in infrared light by the robot Cassini spacecraft currently orbiting Saturn. These images have been compiled into the above time-lapse movie.

This movie of Saturn's largest moon, Titan, shows data taken with Cassini's visual and infrared mapping spectrometer during the last three flybys of Titan. The flybys took place on Oct. 28, 2005, Dec. 26, 2005, and Jan. 15, 2006.
Ocean Waves On Saturn's Moon Titan May Have Been Spied By NASA's Cassini Spacecraft - Pinoria.com
Titan is the only moon known with thick clouds ; this unusual satellite of Saturn shows evidence of evaporating lakes created by methane rain. The clouds that make Titan featureless in visible light have now been pierced several times in infrared light by the robot Cassini spacecraft currently orbiting Saturn. Titan about 16 days to complete one rotation. Titan's surface was imaged by the Huygens probe, which survived for three hours on a cold and sandy dark region.

Earth is the only planet known to have life We’ve discovered past evidence of water on Mars, and the building blocks of life on Saturn’s moon Titan. We can see amino acids in nebulae in deep space. But Earth is the only place life has actually been discovered. But if there’s life on other planets, scientists are building the experiments that will help find it
the moon is a symbol of virginity, time that must be spent patiently, and the lover's capricious nature. The moon is shown to represent chastity through Puck's referance to it as the relm of Diana, the virgin godess. Theseus presents that the moon is symbolic of time that must be spent patiently by blaming the moon for keeping him and Hipolyta apart. By its waxing and waning it is shows the fickle nature of the lovers, as they both change frequently.

My daughter was born during a full moon so I hope to get a tattoo that looks li m email this someday.
On June 23rd 2013 the sun, Earth and moon was in alignment, with the moon hitting its perigee; that means it was closer to the Earth than normal, making it bigger and brighter and full. #fullmoon #supermoon
Ruling Planet: The Moon The Moon is known for its regularly changing appearance and mood. Likewise, you prefer to be in transition rather than stuck in one place. Life slides through continual growth and contraction; incorporating this natural ebb and flow into your lifestyle is key. The Moon lights up the otherwise-dark night, and your heartfelt words/gestures help light the paths for everyone around you.
