Cassini Update

Radio telescopes on Earth have confirmed that the European Space Agency's Huygens probe has landed on the surface of Titan. NASA's Cassini spacecraft has turned towards Earth and will relay data received from the probe over the next few hours to the Deep Space Network. ESA scientists expect to get the first look at that data about 8:30 a.m. PST.

As always, for more information, I refer you to NASA's Cassini webpage or the ESA's Cassini webpage. In addition, Wikipedia has a great page about the moon Titan which explains exactly why this mission is so exciting...

Let's see what's there...
