Africa - the second largest continent in the world is also home to the largest desert in the world—the Sahara. In fact there are three deserts on the continent—The Sahara, the Namib and the Kalahari. Together these three amazingly vast and diverse land masses cover a large portion of Africa. Beautiful, yet treacherous, these areas of the continent

Interesting article and really fascinating photos of the landscape of Saturn's Titan moon which are compared to the landscape of the Namib Desert in Africa. Amazing similarities!
