(Denver, CO - Jan. 14,2005) Gail Barton, a space artist from Lakewood, Colorado, studies a video monitor in the Denver Museum of Nature & Science's Space Odyssey area Friday afternoon, Jan. 14, 2005, of the first image of Saturn's largest moon, Titan, photographed and sent to earth by the European Space Agency's Huygens probe after its successful landing on Titan Friday morning (Denver time). The Huygens probe transmitted data for several hours to the Cassini spacecraft,which carried the probe from Earth and is in orbit around Saturn,and which relayed the information to earth until Cassini swung below the moon's radio horizon. The Denver Museum of Nature & Science will show a news briefing in Ricketson Auditorium and on Space Odyssey's Galaxy Stage provided by the European Space Agency and NASA at 10am to 11am Saturday and at 12:30pm Dr. Steve Lee, Museum curator of planetary science, will give an overview of the Cassini-Huygens mission and update information received from Huygens in the Ricketson Auditorium.
