Huygens successfully lands on Titan

Wow.

Pictures are starting to come back from the Cassini-Huygens probe, from the surface of Saturn’s moon Titan, after the probe successfully landed earlier today. Here’s one of the first series, a view of ice blocks strewn around on the surface.

It’s amazing to stop and remind ourselves, in the midst of our domestic squabbles and international wars, that there’s a lot more to discover out there.

Congratulations to the ESA/ESOC, NASA, and the entire Cassini-Huygens team!
