We hover above the equatorial plane of Saturn in
this artistic impression, the spectacular rings illuminated by the distant Sun. The
rings are made of countless icy fragments, mostly small but some as large as a house.
It is their icy coverings that ...

Within the Rings of Saturn
In this clip, we view the planet Saturn from a
distance, before diving towards its equatorial plane and into its glorious ring
system. The ring particles are made almost entirely of water ice – which is why
they are so bright – and range in size ...

Flight Over Titan's Lakes
This computer animation gives us a glimpse of one of the Solar System's largest
natural satellites - Titan, the biggest moon of Saturn. Titan, which is 50% bigger than our own Moon, was
the subject of the Huygens probe in 2005, glimpsed at the end o...

Huygens on the Surface of Titan
This image imagines the Huygens probe on the surface of Saturn's largest moon, Titan. The probe, which landed on
the satellite in January 2005, is shown as it might appear now, having weathered
Titan's icy, hydrocarbon-rich climate for several years....

Plumes of Enceladus
Enceladus is a mid-sized satellite of Saturn, about
500 km across, known since 1789. In 2005, the Cassini spacecraft discovered that this
relatively small world is, surprisingly, geologically active. Geyser-like jets of
water were seen spewing from t...

Space Travel Poster – Titan
This illustration is one of a series that I have been working on, borrowing heavily
from the art-deco-style travel posters from the middle of the twentieth century.
Titan is the largest moon of Saturn, and the only
known natural satellite with a s...

The Quiet Sea
This is an impression of the Huygens probe, which touched down on Titan on 14 January
2005. Saturn is shown nearly full (as it appeared
when the probe got there) but with a substantial shadow of the ring system on it cast
by the Sun. A bit of artisti...

A spaceship approaches Titan, Saturn's largest moon,
at some time in the future. Saturn looms in the
background. I did the ship from scratch in Photoshop, literally drew it line by line
and then coloured it in. Takes ages, but I think the results alw...
