The Huygens Satellite

The European Space Agency’s Huygens Probe was a unique, advanced spacecraft and a crucial part of the overall Cassini mission to explore Saturn. The probe was about 9 feet wide (2.7 meters) and weighed roughly 700 pounds (318 kilograms). It was built like a shellfish: a hard shell protected it’s delicate interior from high temperatures during the a 2.25 hour descent through the atmosphere of Saturn’s giant moon Titan.
