I'm a child at heart and so have been following the news of the Cassini-Huygens spaceprobe's arrival at Saturn with an increasing mixture of wonder and excitement. The first probe dedicated to the study of Saturn and its moons, Cassini-Huygens promises to greatly increase our knowledge of this most beautiful and mysterious of solar system planets. In a few days time Cassini-Huygens will begin its Saturn Orbit Insertion by firing its rockets and decelerating out of Trans-Saturn orbit. And then the fun begins. Over the next few years the probe will investigate Saturn in unparalled detail and, via the Huygens probe which is piggy-backing on the main probe, will aim to discover more about Titan, the only moon in the solar system to have its own atmosphere. After the disappointment of Beagle 2, there is much here for Britain to be proud of. Many of the instruments onboard Cassini and Huygens were designed with British input and astronomers across the country have played important roles in the project. Nasa's Jet Propulsion Laboratory has an excellent website for those wanting to know more.
