Cassini (the mothership) was launched on the 15th of October, 1997 to study Saturn and its moons. After travelling for 7 long years and a safe touchdown, first pieces of information have started coming. Titan was chosen for this $3.2Billion research exercise, as the satellite is known for its thick atmosphere thus mimicking Earth's atmosphere during its formative years. Here are sound clips that a traveller may have experienced inside Huygens (the probe) during the descent. Listen to alien atmosphere!
