This artwork is based on a synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) image from Cassini’s Titan Radar Mapper. It was taken on June 21, 2011, as part of the Cassini-Huygens Mission, a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency, and the Italian Space Agency. Titan is Saturn’s largest moon and several surface features are represented in this piece. The Ksa crater is rendered in the upper left corner. The red lines represent the linear dunes on the surface of the moon. The lighter sections on the right and lower left illustrate part of the area referred to as Xanadu, a large feature centered near the moon’s equator. In my orientation of the artwork, North is to the left.
