Update Sept. 15: In 1997, the Cassini-Huygens mission's epic journey to Saturn began when it launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. In 2004, the probe arrived in orbit around Saturn and for the past 13 years it has amazed the inhabitants on planet Earth on a daily basis. In 2005, the Huygens probe carried by Cassini landed on Titan, Saturn's largest moon. The  mission officially came to end on Sept. 15, 2017. Take a look back at the probe's amazing mission with NASA, ESA and the Italian Space Agency in these retrospective videos below.
