If Titan had been born on the frozen rim of the system it would have been much like this world. Triton is similar in composition to its sunward cousin but has only a tenuous atmosphere of nitrogen and methane. Of little practical importance, Triton hosts a single small outpost, the Lassel Planetary Science Centre. The Centre studies the traumatic evolution the icy moon, its geologically diverse landscape of cliffs and folds of ice and rock, and the nitrogen geysers that lift dark particles many kilometres into the starry sky.
