The Cassini-Huygens spacecraft has studied Titan for many years. But its tantalising discoveries about Saturn’s largest moon have led to new mysteries. One of those involves what seem to be wind-created sand dunes spotted by Cassini near the moon’s equator. These dunes are up to one hundred yards high, many miles in length, and point to the east. Climate simulations indicate that Titan’s near-surface winds, similar to Earth’s trade winds, blow toward the west. What’s going on?

Uranus' moon Umbriel -- Umbriel is a moon of Uranus discovered in 1851 by William Lassell. It was named after the 'dusky melancholy sprite' in Alexander Pope's The Rape of the Lock. Umbriel's surface is the darkest of the Uranian moons, and it is also the least geologically active. It is mostly composed of water ice, with the balance made up of silicate rock and methane ice. Most of its methane ice is on its surface. ----- Discovery Discovered by William Lassell...

Uranus' moon Ariel -- Ariel is a moon of Uranus discovered in 1851 by William Lassell. Its composition is roughly 50% water ice, 30% silicate rock, and 20% methane ice, and it appears to have regions of fresh frost in places. Largely devoid of impact craters, Ariel appears to have undergone a period of intense geological activity that has produced a huge network of fault canyons and liquid water outflows over its surface. ----- Discovery Discovered by William Lassell...
