[BREAKING NEWS] Huygens Probe Lands on Titan

Scientists from the European Space Agency have reported that the Huygens probe landed on Saturn's moon Titan today at approximately 7:45 AM ET.

"We have a signal. We know that Huygens is alive meaning the dream is alive," said Jean-Jacques Dordain, director general for ESA, which designed Huygens. "This is already an engineering success and we will see, later this afternoon, if this is a scientific success."
