Landing on Titan!

Now this is cool.

Maybe it's not as cool as dust devils on Mars, but a fish-eye movie of the Huygens probe's descent and landing on Titan is still pretty darn nifty. Especially when you consider how smooth it is, with the good folk at NASA constructing it out of thousands of still photos. It's not like they had a broadband webcam set up on the thing. I just wish they'd posted a higher resolution version of the movie.

Cassini is one of the greatest space missions ever. Period.

    Oh, Jayme, you made me laugh with the tadpole portion. Kids - what can you do? that's why I have cats.
