Huygens Descent

In 2005 the space craft Cassani carried the probe Huygens to Saturn's moon, Titan. The epic journey took 7 years. Once there, Huygens launched from its platform and descended through the atmosphere of Titan to land upon the surface. This is simulation of that descent.

The view from Cassani, back to earth, is really cool.
