New Huygens Titan descent video available 24

pamaru writes "Scientists from the Cassini/Huygens mission Descent Imager/Spectral Radiometer (DISR) team have released new Huygens video footage. "This descent animation lasting about 1 minute starts at an altitude of 300 km and moves eastward along the trajectory that the Huygens probe traveled on its journey to Titan's surface. The Cassini orbiter ISS, RADAR & VIMS images of this area are displayed in quick succession followed by DISR mosaics from increasingly lower altitudes. The surface color is approximately what a human observer riding along with the probe would see, if she or he could see the surface through Titan's atmospheric haze." This is cool stuff... grab it from the DISR homepage or from Coral Cache"
