Some of the major discoveries of the recent Cassini-Huygens mission have put Titan and Enceladus rmly on the Solar System map. The mission has revolutionised our view of Solar System satellites, arguably matching their scienti c importance with that of their host planet. While Cassini-Huygens has made big surprises in revealing Titan’s organically rich environment and Enceladus’ cryovolcanism, the mission’s success naturally leads us to further probe these ndings. We advocate the acknowl- edgement of Titan and Enceladus science as highly relevant to ESA’s long-term roadmap, as logical follow-on to Cassini-Huygens. In this White Paper, we will out- line important science questions regarding these satellites and identify the science themes we recommend ESA cover during the Voyage 2050 planning cycle. Address- ing these science themes would make major advancements to the present knowledge we have about the Solar System, its formation, evolution, and likelihood that other habitable environments exist outside the Earth’s biosphere.
