Catalyst - Descent to Titan

About

This is the gripping story of the Huygens probe's journey to Titan, Saturn's enigmatic moon.

The final phase of its epic trip begins with a Christmas Day separation from the Cassini spacecraft. For three weeks the probe closes in on Titan's brooding orange cloud tops.

Never before had anyone attempted to land a spacecraft on such a distant world and the tension mounts as the final Dramatic moments of Huygens' descent begins.

Would the probe's data and images reveal Titan's many secrets? Would there be a signal at all?
