The Cassini mission to Saturn is one of the grandest, most epic journeys that NASA have ever attempted. Nearly 20 years in the making, the mission’s purpose has been to study Saturn and its moons in detail. One of the coolest parts of the Cassini spacecraft’s mission was when the Huygens probe landed on Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, in January 2005.
Huygens became the first spacecraft to land on an object in the outer solar system. To this day, the Huygens probe’s touchdown on Saturn’s moon Titan remains the most distant landing ever achieved by humankind. Pretty epic.
