Huygens lands on Titan

Last Friday, ESA's Huygens spacecraft landed on the surface of Titan around 10.5 South, 192 West, revealing a landscape modified by the flow of methane on the surface, though at the time of landing, liquid methane was at least 15 cm below the surface, as well as tectonism. I will be posting more comments on the Huygens images tomorrow. In the meantime, here are some good links:
