Near the end of its long journey to Saturn, the Cassini spacecraft, the largest interplanetary spacecraft ever launched by NASA, is about to begin one of the most ambitious missions of planetary exploration ever conducted. The mission is a joint undertaking by several nations, with perhaps the most notable contribution outside of NASA is the Huygens atmospheric probe, supplied by the European Space Agency, and destined for the atmosphere of Titan, the largest satellite of Saturn. The Huygens probe and the Cassini orbiter's four-year tour, will accomplish a comprehensive investigation of the Saturnian system that includes, the atmosphere, magnetosphere, rings, and moons. This presentation will describe the Cassini-Huygens mission, and provide insight into what is involved in getting a mission of such scope to this point in its life cycle.
