Beneath Titan's Veil
The dark, murky, hydrocarbon-soaked landscape of Saturn's largest moon
Beneath Titan's Veil
Titan is the subject of the Huygens probe, which reached this Saturnian moon on 14 January 2005. In this image, made before the encounter, I assumed a landscape sopping with murky, frigid, liquid hydrocarbon seas, while similar substances rain from the thick air. This more recent image done for the publisher Kingfisher shows a similar landscape with the probe itself in view.
