July’s been busy with fresh takes on familiar faces. NASA recently released some of the clearest, most detailed views of Titan, Saturn’s largest moon. With a diameter of 3,200 miles (5,150 km), Titan is the solar system’s second largest moon after Jupiter’s Ganymede and the only one with a dense atmosphere. NASA employed the Cassini spacecraft to peer beneath Titan’s veil of haze by photographing it in infrared light. Infrared lies just beyond the red end of the rainbow. Although humans can’t see it, we can feel it as the sensation of heat. Infrared blasts right through Titan’s haze.
