Huygens is On Its Way

The European Space Agency's Huygens probe successfully detached from Cassini on December 25, and began its brief journey to Titan. The probe is currently dormant, though, and will remain this way for most of its 20-day journey to Saturn's largest moon. Four days before arrival, a triply-redundant alarm clock will wake the probe up, and it will prepare for arrival.

On January 14, 2005, the probe will enter Titan's atmosphere, descending to the surface in about 2 hours.
