Titan is the largest moon of Saturn. It is also the only known moon in our solar system that has an atmosphere. The Cassini-Huygens mission in 2004 discovered large liquid hydrocarbon lakes on Titan's surface. 

Discovery of TitanEdit

Titan was discovered on March 25, 1655, by Dutch astronomer Christiaan Huygens. Christiaan was inspired by Galileo's discovery of Jovian moons Europa, Io, Ganymede and Callisto. With his brother, they began building telescopes around 1650. Christiaan discovered Titan with the first telescope they had built. 

Possibility of life on TitanEdit

Due to Titan's Earth-related features, many have speculated simple life may exist on Titan.
