Cassini-HuygensThe Huygens space probe has sent back its first set of data about Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, after landing successfully say space scientists. The spacecraft probe had still been transmitting data for over two hours after it had landed they confirmed. “We are the first visitors to Titan,” said an excited Jean-Jacques Dordain, director general of the European Space Agency (ESA). It is also the furthest from Earth a spacecraft has ever been landed. “In the morning we had an engineering success and this afternoon we can also say we have a scientific success,” he added.

(Update) Enkele beelden die de probe terugstuurde naar de Aarde.
