Cassini, Huygens:

Huygens is on the surface! Blocks of ice (?) litter the surface in this raw DISR image from the surface of Titan, 67 light-minutes distant from us. Luckily the lander was not toppled over and unable to point its uplink antenna... what I noticed was the rounded nature of the rocks. Also, very much like Mars, isn't it? Even with such different surface composition and temperatures!
