What Scientists/Engineers Say About This Image:

"I am sometimes disappointed by how so few of the public know that we landed on Titan. We actually parachuted through the atmosphere of Titan and landed on the surface near a giant methane lake. We saw methane rivers, and it was raining as the probe fell down. It is absolutely incredible that there is a little spacecraft on Titan right now!"

--Michelle Thaller: Assistant Director of Science for Communications, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
