It made it!!!

I've been suffering with connection difficulties all weekend, but just a quick note that Huygens made it! You could say I am moderately excited.

I noticed the BBC tried to play down NASA's role as much as possible, and that some bloggers played down ESA's role as much as possible. I just wish the twits on both sides of that camp would shut up. Through the joint efforts of NASA and ESA we have a probe orbiting Saturn, and have set a probe down on the surface of Titan. This is an achievement I hope that all humanity could take a measure of pride in, for it is our collective experience of this wondrous solar system that is being enhanced.
