Probe Set to Enter Titan’s Atmosphere

If all goes according to plan, Huygens will parachute through Titan’s hazy atmosphere tomorrow. The 8.9-foot-wide (2.7-meter-wide), 703- pound (319-kilogram) probe should land somewhere just south of the moon’s equator.

Scientists from around the world have been waiting for years for the moment when Huygens sends back to Earth images and readings from Saturn’s mysterious moon’s atmosphere.
