The Huygens probe will give the first glimpse inside the foggy atmosphere of Titan, a moon bigger than Mercury.

It may have mountains and hydrocarbon seas, and an Earth-like weather system driven by sunlight.

The probe could touch down on land, sea or sludge. It may then continue sending back data for a few minutes.

Despite its similarity to Earth, Titan is too cold for life.
