Chronicling a bold voyage of discovery — the Cassini/Huygens mission to Saturn and its enigmatic moon Titan — NOVA’s “Voyage to the Mystery Moon” delivers striking images of these fascinating planetary bodies nearly a billion miles from Earth. Saturn’s broad rings hold myriad mysteries, and Titan, whose soupy atmosphere is similar to the one that enshrouded our planet billions of years ago, may hold clues to the origins of life.

Here’s what you’ll find on the companion Web site:

Life on a Tiny Moon? http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/titan/porco.html
Saturn’s water-spewing moon Enceladus has suddenly become target #1 in the search for life beyond Earth, says astrophysicist Carolyn Porco.

Anatomy of the Rings http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/titan/anatomy.html
Images sent back from Cassini are resolving age-old mysteries about Saturn’s rings.

How to Get an Atmosphere http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/titan/atmosphere.html
Only four planets or moons with solid bodies — Earth, Mars, Venus, and Titan — have substantial atmospheres. Why?

Sounds of Titan http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/titan/sounds.html
Hear the first-ever audio recording from one billion miles away, and find out what makes sounds in space different from those on Earth.
