Saturn’s sponge-like moon Hyperion. Hyperion is shaped a bit like a potato and, with dimensions of 410 x 260 x 220 km, is one of the largest bodies in the Solar System known to be so irregular. Its odd, almost ‘bubbly’ appearance, can be attributed to it having a very low density for its size. Because of these properties the entire moon is porous, like a sponge, with well-preserved craters of all shapes and sizes packed together across its surface. Scientists think that this moon is mostly…

This stunning false-color view of Saturn's moon Hyperion reveals crisp details across the strange, tumbling moon's surface. Differences in color could represent differences in the composition of surface materials.

タイタンは土星最大の衛星で、直径約5150km。窒素とメタンの分厚い大気に覆われ、地表温度はマイナス170度。地球のような水循環はないものの、メタンなどの炭化水素が液体状態で存在していると考えられている。特にカッシーニ土星探査機のこれまでの観測で、タイタンの北極には多数のメタンの湖が集中して存在していることが確認されている。

Pluto's moon Charon

The Frozen Canyons of Pluto’s North Pole

Charon's cratered uplands at the top are broken by series of canyons, and replaced on the bottom by the rolling plains of the informally named Vulcan Planum in this image from NASA's New Horizons.

A molecule detected in Titan's atmosphere could mean that methane-based life exists in Titan's oceans. This image shows Titan in ultraviolet and infrared wavelengths. Red and green colors indicate where atmospheric methane is absorbing light, while the blue color shows the upper atmospheric haze. NASA researchers have confirmed the existence in Titan's atmosphere of vinyl cyanide, which is an organic compound that could potentially provide the cellular membranes for microbial life on Titan.
