The largest moon of Saturn is its most interesting as well. Underneath its thick nitrogen atmosphere there are landscapes looking like those we have on Earth. Admittedly the temperature on Titan is only about 94 kelvin, frozen water, liquid methane and other hydrocarbons exist there. On Titan rivers, lakes and mountains have formed, but in an environment, which wouldn't allow life as we know it.
