In orbit around the second largest moon in the Solar System, the largest moon of the second largest planet in the Solar System is Cassini station. Named after the space probe that went to Saturn at the start of the millenium and ferried Huygens probe to land on and study Titan. The probe in turn was named after Giovanni Cassini who discoverd the Saturnian moons Iapetus in 1671, Rhea in 1672 and Tethys and Dione in 1684 and also discovered the gap between rings A and B known as the Cassini division. Huygens probe was named after Christiaan Huygens who disocoverd Titan in 1655.
Saturn, also known as The Lord Of The Rings, is best known for its impressive ring system. Saturn was also belived to be the last planet in the Solar System for thousands of years until Uranus was discovered in 1781 by William Herschel with a home-made telescope.
There are two space stations in orbit around Titan that look identical. The furthest one out is Cassini station while the other is residenital. In fact Titan is the only moon to have two of this type of residential stations around it and Cassini station is the only residential type station that actually contains a business.
