Huygens Art Contest First Prize Winner: Hettick says: "The Titan question had been discussed at length on the International Association of Astronomical Artists (IAAA) member's listserver -- and I was intrigued by the conversations about �What will the surface really be like? What color will the sky turn out to be? Could Saturn or any stars actually be visible from Titan's surface? I decided to paint "Titan Touchdown" the way I would expect the surface to look and I decided to downplay the mechanical and technical aspects of the probe itself --
