Huygens on Titan


Had NASA TV on watching ESA's Huygens probe make its descent while I worked today. Not much to see of course but it did mean I got to see the first photo the second it was shown and a couple of hours ahead of the news channels.

Wonderful images, the first time an alien world has seemed "earthlike" in the sense of seas and river forms, and a near complete absence of craters. Even if it is about -180 degrees below.

Go Europe! Go Huygens!
