Saturn’s Moons: Titan to Enceladus

Lecture no. 14 from the course: A Field Guide to the Planets

Saturn’s Moons: Titan to Enceladus

Taught by Professor Sabine Stanley | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

With a system of 62 moons located in and far beyond its ring system, Saturn has outer moons that are some of the most fascinating worlds in the solar system. Learn why Titan and Enceladus hold such promise in our search for extraterrestrial life—from global subsurface oceans of water on both moons, to Titan’s Earth-like surface and organic molecules in its atmosphere. It’s no wonder that NASA has announced its Dragonfly mission to Titan, scheduled to launch in 2026.
