Fifth anniversary of the landing on Titan

14 January 2010

Five years ago today ESA’s Huygens probe reached the upper layer of Titan’s atmosphere and landed on the surface after a parachute descent of 2 hours and 28 minutes. As part of the joint NASA/ESA/ASI mission to Saturn and its moons, the Huygens probe was sent from the Cassini spacecraft to explore Titan, Saturn’s largest moon.
