Saturn is famous for its rings, but more than 60 moons orbit the planet as well. The lunar line-up includes some of the most intriguing worlds in the solar system, including two that are promising candidates in the search for life beyond Earth.

Thanks to NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, we know more about Saturn’s moons than ever before. The spacecraft even discovered more than half a dozen moons during its 13-year tour around the planet.
