The ESA’s Huygens probe set down on the Titan in 2005, and a time-lapse video of its descent images was created. Huygens separated from the robotic Cassini spacecraft soon after it achieved orbit around Saturn in late 2004 and began approaching Titan. For two hours after arriving, Huygens plummeted toward Titan‘s surface, recording at first only the shrouded moon’s opaque atmosphere. The probe soon deployed a parachute to slow its decent, pierced the thick clouds, and began transmitting images of a surface. Landing in a dried sea and surviving for 90 minutes, Huygen’s return unique images.
