Titan a Billion times closer 1

Ten years ago, on Jan. 14, 2005, the Huygens probe touched down on Saturn‘s largest moon, Titan.   Watch the amazing zooming on Titan, a billion times closer…

This new, narrated movie was created with data collected by Cassini’s imaging cameras and the Huygens Descent Imager/Spectral Radiometer (DISR). The first minute shows a zoom into images of Titan from Cassini’s cameras, while the remainder of the movie depicts the view from Huygens during the last few hours of its historic descent and landing.
