The Cassini probe, which has been orbiting Saturn since July 2004, and the landing of the Huygens atmospheric capsule on Titan are the basic elements of the joint American and European Cassini-Huygens mission. Both space probes have literally redrawn the picture of this mysterious moon. The book 'Titan from Cassini-Huygens' presents for the first time an overall picture of Titan using the knowledge acquired from the Huygens landing and the Cassini flybys. DLR planetary researcher Prof. Ralf Jaumann is the senior author of the chapter 'Geology and Surface Processes on Titan'.
