Caption

Cassini-Huygens launch. Launch of the Cassini-Huygens mission from Cape Canaveral, Florida, USA, on top of a Titan IV-Centaur rocket. This launch took place at 08:43 UTC on 15 October 1997. This is a joint NASA-ESA mission. After a journey of seven years, the spacecraft reached Saturn and NASA's Cassini orbiter released the ESA's Huygens probe. Huygens descended to the surface of Titan, and the Cassini spacecraft entered orbit around Saturn and began an extensive survey of the planet. Huygens was the first probe to land on a world in the outer Solar System. Cassini's mission was later extended to 2017.
