I enjoyed this crazy movie of Huygens' decent. :)
If anyone knows of a better quality version please let me know!

I watched the movie also! It took a couple of minutes to download; but was worth the wait. I don't know of any other versions.

Description of APOD 5-8-06

I have been looking at APOD almost daily for several years now, and really enjoy the site. But I'm also a bit of a pedant, and was irritated by today's outbreak of "apostrophophilia" in the text. The probe was called Huygens, not Huygen. And the plural of moon is moons, not "moon's". Did your proofreader take the day off?

Sorry to quibble on my first post to the forum. Keep up the great work.

Hello


,,,,,,,,,,,, that was no error.


As for Titan,,,,,,,,,imagine if we could travel to these places.

Have to finish building this space ship. It has been there half finished for so long.

Just need a few more parts and fuel and food. It will take me a few days there and back.
