Surf’s Up—On Saturn’s Moon Titan, Cassini Mission Reveals, Examiner

“On December 24, 2004, Cassini sent the Huygens probe down to Titan’s surface. The probe arrived safely on Jan. 15,2005. Since then the two craft have been shipping exploration information back home via three microwave antennas.”

Editor’s note: Huygens only operated for a matter of hours on the surface of Titan after landing. All of the data it collected has long been sent back to Earth. Therefore it cannot still be “shipping” anything back home.

Editor’s update: What a coincidence – they corrected the story after I posted my note. Here is a cached version of the original article.
