" Titan is a great target to choose. Titan discovered in 1655 .Own in its world. The Cassini should photograph the titan as it can give us a better idea of its geographical features of it may also reveal the untold and unseen water lakes or rives which may support life or bacterial life which is a great feel to us that we are not alone in this lonely world there is someone out there with us.

This expedition may also say something about the polar regions as it is at axis of zero there may be frozen water which may tell us about how the moon enriches its beauty but it also one great thing it is the only another place where these are present that is none other than earth. The interesting thing which can be revealed of that is this polar caps my melt and flow in some types of caves and form underground lakes and sometimes these lakes my flow to the hotter and they may come out as water volcanoes and may be in some of these lakes microbial extraterrestrial life may exist and the other may be of that there may be a underground ocean out there and this all can be known only by a picture of the polar caps of Titan.

The other thing which enriches this target is its dense nitrogen atmosphere which is also present on the earth. This can also lead to formation of clouds on the above the pictures taken can show are there any clouds out there which will lead to rain and when unluck maybe drizzle. This can be of any methane ethane and even water.

Because of the extremely cold temperatures typical of celestial bodies that are that far away from the Sun, the structure of Titan's chemical atmosphere is in a state of deep freeze. It is this chemical composition Titan's atmosphere might consist of compounds similar to those present in the primordial days of the Earth's atmosphere. Titan's thick cloudy atmosphere is mostly nitrogen, like Earth's, but may contain much higher percentages of "smog-like" chemicals such as methane and ethane. The smog may be so thick that it actually rains "gasoline-like" liquids. The organic nature of some of the chemicals found in Titan's atmosphere might indicate that this fascinating moon could harbor some form of life.

Although Titan is classified as a moon, it is larger than the planets Mercury and Pluto. It has a planet-like atmosphere which is denser than those of Mercury, Earth, Mars and Pluto. Titan's air is predominantly made up of nitrogen with other hydrocarbon elements. These hydrocarbon rich elements are the building blocks for amino acids necessary for the formation of life. Titan's environment may be similar to that of the Earth's before life began putting oxygen into the atmosphere. This can only be done by the expedition of the titan.

The world a unknown place we may not know that we may exists or not in future we may not know our past but the titan expedition may say us were we in this types of conditions before or what my happen in future. "
