Signs of life have been found on Titan, Saturn's largest moon.A group of visionaries led by NASA's Paula Benacerraf plan a daring one-way mission that will cost them everything. Taking nearly a decade, the billion-mile voyage includes a `slingshot' transit of Venus, a catastrophic solar storm, and a constant struggle to keep the ship and crew functioning.But it is on the icy surface of Titan itself that the true adventure begins. In the orange methane slush the astronauts will discover the secrets of life's origins and reach for a human destiny beyond their wildest dreams.

About the Author:

Stephen Baxter applied to become an astronaut in 1991.

His science background is in maths and engineering. He is married and lives in Northumberland.

Review:

`Buy TITAN, read it - then go out and buy everything else that Baxter has ever written' New Scientist`This is a tale of equivalent scope to 2001, while the visions of Titan life have that sense of Clarke-style cosmic sorrow'SFX`A plausible tale of America's last gasp at interplanetary exploration... Stephen Baxter proves what a cosmic thinker he is'Washington Post Book World
