Fact of the Day: Lord of Titan

The mountains on Saturn's moon Titan are all named after mountains in J.R.R. Tolkien's stories of Middle-Earth. For example Titan's Doom Mons is named after Mount Doom from Lord of the Rings.

  7. That's awesome. I could only hope to one day be a big enough writer that they name mountains on other planets after things I've written.
