The film gives more spectacular footage from Huygens, as well as realistic artist renditions of landscapes on Titan, with plateaus of ice cut by rivers of hydrocarbon, which soaks into the ice;  volcanoes of water-ammonia ice, big lakes, and sand dunes near the Equator, or organic particles from the Sky.
