Ices relevant to large moonsGanymede and Europa (Jupiter), Titan (Saturn), Triton (Neptune), Pluto
Significant fractions of ices (50% by mass)
Titan has a significant atmosphere (nitrogen and methane) Due to be explored by Cassini/Huygens 2004
For Titan ammonia hydrates and methane hydrates are important phases
