I have long been enamored by the celestial bodies, everything from our own local star, right up to gas giants and their composit.

Well, I was looking for the new information from NASA regarding their decision not to send the Cassini probe into the gaseous 'eye' of Saturn (Which is slightly questionable considering Cassini's nuclear payload,But I am certain it would be crushed within the atmosphere with ease.even though, in terms of astrophysics Saturn is unstable and 'about' to become a star) for another two years, and I came across this amazing footage of the Huygens probe (Part Of Cassini) making its entry through the atmophere and onto the alien landscape of Titan.

YouTube - Cassini-Huygens - Descent on Titan

This footage is incredible (Though I am certain some of you will have seen this anyway, it fills me with wonder!), they sent the commands to control the probe from Earth with as much power as a mobile phone signal! It even repeatedly scans the planets surface as it desends.

Your thoughts on any of the above, please!

@Lazarius,
In one word: WOW! I wonder what else can be found on Titan. It seems freezing, but it has water! I would love to see more!

Check out NASA btw:
