NASA has build a video of the Huygens probe's descent into Titan's murky atmosphere. The movie was built with data collected during the 147-minute plunge through Titan's thick orange-brown atmosphere to a soft sandy riverbed on Jan. 14, 2005. In 4 minutes and 40 seconds, the movie shows what the probe saw within the few hours of the descent and the landing.
