More photos and detailed information regarding the Huygens probe, that landed on Titan last week, has emerged on the web.

Scientists have also composed a flash animation visualizing the descent of the probe with photos.
When the probe landed, it was not with a thud, or a splash, but a 'splat'. It landed in Titanian 'mud'.

"I think the biggest surprise is that we survived landing and that we lasted so long," said DISR team member Charles See. "There wasn't even a glitch at impact. That landing was a lot friendlier than we anticipated."
