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.
