Titan, also known as "Saturn VI", was discovered on March 25, 1655, by the Dutch astronomer Christiaan Huygens.

The name Titan (and the names of all seven satellites of Saturn then known) come from John Herschel's 1847 publication Results of Astronomical Observations Made at the Cape of Good Hope. He suggested the names of the mythological Titans, sisters and brothers of Cronos, the Greek Saturn.

Titan is the only natural satellite with a substantial natural atmosphere in the Solar system. This atmosphere is the basis of the Outer System part of the CHON trade, though many of the ships plying this trade don't even need to land.
