The twelve Titans, children of Uranus (Heaven) and Gê (Earth), were the group of gods
immediately preceding the Olympian gods in Greek mythology. The Olympians defeated
their parents the Titans, in a battle — the Titanomachy.
According to a widely held view, as punishment for their crime, the chief Olympian God
Zeus struck the Titans with his thunderbolt, and from the remains of the destroyed
Titans humankind was born.
Titan is the largest moon of Saturn and the second-largest natural satellite in the Solar
System. It is the only moon known to have a dense atmosphere, and the only known
body in space, other than Earth, where clear evidence of stable bodies of surface liquid
has been found. Its atmosphere is the only nitrogen-rich dense atmosphere in the Solar
System aside from Earth. In addition to methane, there are trace amounts of other
hydrocarbons, such as ethane, acetylene and propane plus other gases such as carbon
dioxide and carbon monoxide.
