The results of the Huygens landing and the first four years of the Cassini spacecraft in orbit around Saturn have now been compiled in two books in which scientists from the German Aerospace Center (DLR) have had significant involvement.

The volume 'Saturn from Cassini-Huygens' was edited by Michele Dougherty, Larry Esposito and Stamatios M. Krimigis and published by Springer Dordrecht Verlag (Heidelberg, London, New York, 2009). The DLR planetary geologist Prof. Ralf Jaumann is the senior author of the chapter 'Icy Satellites: Geological Evolution and Surface Processes'. Together with DLR planetary researcher Dr Katrin Stephan, Prof. Jaumann was also involved in the chapter 'Cartographic Mapping of the Icy Satellites Using ISS and VIMS Data'. Over 805 pages, 'Saturn from Cassini-Huygens' describes the results of the Cassini orbiter regarding Saturn, its rings and the icy moons. More than 250 scientists from the USA, Europe and many other countries are directly involved with Cassini and Huygens.
