Titan Map
[For trouble viewing the images/movies on this page, go here]
This mosaic of images taken by the Cassini spacecraft as it approached Saturn shows the surface features of Titan, from the dark, sideways "H" on the right to the area around the south pole to be viewed during the first T0 Titan flyby, indicated on the extreme left and right. Visible in the center is the location where the spacecraft's Huygens probe will descend in January 2005.

The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages the Cassini-Huygens mission for NASA's Office of Space Science, Washington, D.C. The imaging team consists of scientists from the US, England, France, and Germany. The imaging operations center and team lead (Dr. C. Porco) are based at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colo.
