Go to here to see history in the making.... we hope!

Hmm ... been monitoring the NASA & ESA sites
No sign of action as yet ?
14-01-2005, 10:54 PM
does anyone know what time the data from cassini i supposed to arrive?
14-01-2005, 10:56 PM
By my calculations the first media release will be in the early hours of the morning:confused:
Got to be a bit careful as so many different time zones are quoted on the sites:confuse3:

Coverage has just started on Nasa tv , well something any way , how incrediable hey , im about to do a little webcaming on saturn and this incradiable event is happening
14-01-2005, 11:43 PM
Watching ESA tv right now.
The probe is alive and theyre receiving a solid signal, real data to follow later.
Well done Nasa and Esa !
14-01-2005, 11:45 PM
Yep i think they said a dishin hobart recived something first plus Parkes maybe .

Pics are in!! You can goto either the Cassini huygens home page or to the ESA multimedia section. Only 3 Pics so far.

Certainly is awesome
Link to the pictures here:
Watch this link, I'm sure there will be more great science to come.
Hello and welcome Nortilus glad to see you here. The photos of the surface of Titan are very cool. I know I know :lol2: Bit unsure how long Huygens lasted on the surface after touch down, 30min to 90min some are saying. I have read that it sent about 350 images before dying.
15-01-2005, 11:28 PM
Thanx Mick, thought I might start posting on the boards, start to get to know a few ppl in the Australian Amateur Astronomy scene..
Anyhow, The pictures from Titan are great. Some of the panoramic shoots are just awesome.
15-01-2005, 11:32 PM
Welcome Nortilus, you in the same club as Mick?
Great to have you aboard the IceInSpace train! :P
I wish we could zoom into those panoramic shots.. they're just a teaser at this stage :D
15-01-2005, 11:44 PM
Apparently it lasted until it dissapeared over the horizon with reference to cassini which is a couple of hours much longer than anyone else anticipated.
16-01-2005, 07:47 PM
yeah, from the same club as Mick.
Yeah, those certainly are nice pics. I can;t wait till they start releasing a few more of the high quality ones. I was up all night watching the streaming video from Nasa TV of the event. I think I recorded most of it, but I did fall asleep at my desk for about an hour, so i will have to rewatch that bit.
great stuff! saw some of the images and they look great.

Latest shots from ESA are even better, true colour image with the pale orange glow of the atmosphere.
There seems to be mounting evidence of fluid flows on the planet.
Cant wait to see more :atom:

Does anyone know what the actual size dimensions of Huygens are just to get a reference cos if the biggest rock is only 15cm how big is Huygens
16-01-2005, 11:28 PM
2.7 metres across and 300kg
16-01-2005, 11:29 PM
It is 2.7m in diameter
Check out the linkhttp://www.esa.int/SPECIALS/Cassini-Huygens/SEMTV82VQUD_0.html (http://)
Has all the details
It kind of gives me the feeling of the first moon landing.
Mind you I was only 5 Y.O, but I still remember the excitment off it all :eyepop:
