Titan, Saturn’s largest moon, was the target and the high point of this collaboration that has brought great discoveries in planetology. With the Cassini mission now set to end, Athéna Coustenis, research director at the LESIA space and astrophysics instrumentation research laboratory at the Paris Observatory, looks at what it found there.
