At the Beach
"Commissioned by Time-Life books in 1985, early in the Cassini mission development phase, the Huygens probe is shown at splashdown on Titan. Titan was then thought to have a planet-wide ocean of ethane, which rained from the cloud-covered skies, punctuated only with crater rims of water ice."
