After a week of analyzing the data from the Huygens probe, do scientists think of Titan differently? What were the unexpected findings? Which hypotheses were wrong? Which were correct? Join us as we talk to mission scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and get the latest on this enigmatic moon. After yesterday's historic mission to the surface of Titan, what happens next? What do the new pictures of Saturn's largest moon tell us, and what does it mean for our understanding of earth? After its long journey to Saturn's largest moon, Titan, the Huygens probe is released from the Cassini spacecraft. The Huygens probe completes its descent to Titan, capturing hundreds of images on its way. Join Senior Scientist Paul Doherty as he gives us background on this incredible mission and sets the stage for the first close-up images of this mysterious moon. Join Senior Scientist Paul Doherty as we receive the first images of Titan, Jupiter's largest moon, from the European Space Agency headquarters in Darmstadt, Germany. The Huygens probe, released from the Cassini spacecraft, descended to Titan and captured hundreds of images of this mysterious moon.
