Astronomy and Sky and Telescope Titan Special Issues

The Huygens landing is the cover story of both Astronomy and Sky and Telescope. Haven't read the articles yet and will let you know what I find when I do.

Update: Astronomy magazine's article not only has the official DISR created mosaics, but several mosaics created by Enthusiasts. Just thought that was interesting. Nothing significantly newsworthy, other than the figure that the probe swung less than 3 degrees in the troposphere. Sky and Telescope does have a few additional tidbits. First, according to GCMS team member Sushil Atreya said that GCMS detected 100% CH4 relative humidity at an altitude of 17-20 km, suggesting a thick cloud or haze layer at that altitude.
