Scientists expect to have a much clearer vision of the surface of Titan, the
largest moon of Saturn, when the Huygens probe touches down on its surface
in 2004. In the meantime, both ground-based telescopes and space
observatories are contributing to the growing body of information on the
nature of Titan's surface.

New telescope images of an incredibly dense star cluster reveal a surprising
bonanza of binary or paired stars, including a large number of rapidly
rotating incredibly dense collapsed stars, called neutron stars.
