    Solid, no lakes near landing site.

    Lakes of water emitting methane gas due to rotting vegitation. Volcanic mountains sticking out of the water with algae growth all over them. Tidal forces causing all of this. It is a moon at the right distance from Saturn for life to form. :uhh:

    Likely solid, but still some chance of nearby liquid. Either way, it will be cool.
    Please, please no equipment failure! This opportunity won't come again for a long time.

    Equipment failure is always a good bet.

    Goop, slush, Titanic ooze-quicksand, ... a hint of a small rise (solid?) in the distance; no liquid.

    Solid.

    Will stop transmitting successfully two minutes before the calculated moment of contact with said solid surface.

    Cool. I just saw the first image [view from 10 miles above Titan]. Looks like the amazon river delta emptying into the Atlantic ocean.
