First snaps of Titan from Huygen probe.
The ESA Huygens probe (named after the Dutch scientist who discovered the rings of Saturn) has landed intact onto the Titan surface. The Huygens probe separated from the main Cassini craft in December 2004. Sending back some interesting shots of this strange moon of Saturn.
The short lived probe only gets a few hours to gather information and return the data to the earth at the speed of light which takes about an hour to get here.
It has taken 7 years for the Cassini-Huygens craft to reach Saturn (launched Oct1997). Although Cassini will continue on with its mission, Huygens long journey and & short lifespan has ended, successfully.
