Caption: Cassini-Huygens at Titan. Artwork of the spacecraft of the Cassini-Huygens mission, with NASA's Cassini orbiter releasing the ESA's Huygens probe above Titan, Saturn's largest moon. This followed a journey of seven years after the launch from Earth in 1997. Huygens separated from Cassini in late 2004. After separation, the probe drifted for about three weeks until reaching its destination in early 2005. It then descended to the surface of Titan, briefly sending data back to the orbiting Cassini spacecraft which relayed it onwards to Earth. As of 2011, Cassini is still orbiting Saturn and its mission has been extended to 2017.
