Amateur Huygens Images

As I mentioned below, I was pleased that the raw image data from the Huygens probe was released so quickley. This has lead to some rather impressive images from amateurs to be produced. This sort of thing shows how useful, and good, the web can be.

Huygens Success

Well, I’m glad to see that Huygens was so successful. It’s also pleasing to see that all the raw image data has been published so soon. There’s a press conference on Friday too.

Huygens Splodge-down

Huygens will enter the atmosphere of Titan tomorrow. I’m hoping this won’t be as disappointing as the Beagle “landing.” Data should be first recieved back on Earth at 16.14 CET.

New Zealand Satellite Image

Found this rather good image of New Zealand. It was imaged from the Space Shuttle back in 2000 using radar topography. It really shows off the active geology of the country, something which impressed me when I was there.

The film’s pretty good too, as is the same sort of image for Australia.
