A ten-year success story: The Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn
On 15 October 1997, one of the most exciting Solar System exploration projects began: from Cape Canaveral, a Titan 4B launch vehicle carrying a payload the size of a bus, almost seven metres high and weighing over five and a half tonnes, took off and disappeared into the night sky over Florida. A little later, a Centaur upper stage boosted the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft into its trajectory towards Saturn, the second largest planet in our Solar System and a miniature solar system in its own right, with its striking rings and numerous icy moons. The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is involved in many technical and scientific aspects of the Cassini-Huygens mission.
