Caption: Cassini/Huygens spacecraft. Artwork of the Cassini spacecraft approaching Titan, one of the moons of the ringed planet Saturn. The dish-shaped, detachable Huygens probe appears beneath Cassini. Cassini's radio antenna (white, at upper left) is also seen. Once released from Cassini, Huygens will enter the atmosphere of Titan and carry instruments down to its surface. Cassini will orbit Saturn for four years, and will study the planet, its rings, and its moons. Cassini is due to be launched in October 1997 and is expected to reach Saturn in July 2004. The Huygens probe will enter Titan's atmosphere in November 2004.
