Moons Of Saturn

What is Titan

Titan is the largest moon of the planet Saturn, and the second biggest moon in the Milky Way.


Dutch astronomer Christiaan Huygens and his brother Constantijn set out to study space. They later found what we now know as Titan, the first known moon from Saturn.


This large moon has an earth-like atmosphere ; except for the two facts that it's average temperature is -290F (-179C) and Titan is 5,151 kilometers while earth is 12,742 kilometers ; okay maybe not so earth-like.

Titan is a greenish shade.

Titan is a satelite with flowing liquid. But not quite exactly the liquid that you would want to swim in.


Titan orbits around Saturn once every 15 days and 22 hours.

Its atmosphere is made up of 98% nitrogen.

You can fly. Titan's thick atmosphere has less gravity than that of our moon. So you would only need fake wings and a pocket full of dreams and flying would take no more effort than walking.

Titan has a mixture of hydrocarbons that make up natural gases A.K.A. the ridiculously expensive stuff that powers cars and is amazingly smelling and it sometimes rains down.
