Cassini Huygen's Spacecraft
Saturn, the second largest planet of our solar system has always been matter of inquisitiveness because of its picturesque rings and moons. These rings are made of numerous particles of ice and rock and orbit Saturn at varying speeds. These rings have always interested man since the times of Galileo. But, despite the development of new and modern technologies, questions regarding Saturn's rings seem to be unanswered.
In order to find answers for such questions, NASA launched the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft. This spacecraft is expected to reach Saturn by July 2004. The Cassini orbiter will orbit Saturn and its moons for four years. The Huygens probe will study the atmosphere of Titan, Saturn's largest moon and land on its surface.
Cassini-Huygens is an international collaboration between three space agencies. The spacecraft has been built by seventeen nations.
The mission of this spacecraft is to orbit Saturn and its moons and study the atmosphere of the moons.
