(Denver, CO - Jan. 14,2005) Dr. Steve Lee, curator of planetary science at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, describes the descent of the European Space Agency's Huygens probe to Saturn's largest moon, Titan, during a talk Friday afternoon, Jan. 14, 2005, using an animated film in the museum's Ricketson Auditorium. The Huygens probe landed safely on the moon Friday morning (Denver time) and 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. Lee will give an overview in the Ricketson Auditorium of the Cassini-Huygens mission and update information received from Huygens.
