- The above image shows roughly what Titan would actually look
- Titan is the only moon known to have a substantial atmosphere – and, like Earth’s, it is rich in nitrogen.
- The orange color of Titan is attributable to hydrocarbons in its atmospheric haze. Organic compounds in Titan’s atmosphere, as well as, it is thought, in its surface and subsurface liquids, give rise to intriguing speculations regarding hypothetically possible life there.
