Cassini's legacy and the atmospheric chemistry of Titan

The Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn, a collaboration between NASA and the European Space Agency, is set to end on Sept. 15.

The mission has told us a great deal about the unique and unexpected chemistry of Saturn’s moon Titan.

It has changed the way we think about our own planet and the entire solar system.
