Trouble on Titan - Alan E. Nourse

When Tuck Benedict and David Torm faced each other on the bleak and frigid face of Titan, Saturn's sixth moon, they represented, literally, the opposite ends of the universe. For in the twenty-second century, Tuck represented the rich and easy civilization of an Earth that had grown luxurious by utilizing solar energy through a catalytic mineral produced in Titan's grim mines.

David Torm, whose ancestors had been exiled to Titan centruies before, stood for the hardened Titan colonists who huddled beneath their airtight dome to mine the metal responsible for Earth's prosperity. Meeting on the eve of an open revolt by the Titan miners against Earth's authority, these two teen-agers found ground for friendship that their bickering fathers could never see.
