Default Congratulations ESA and Best of Luck

On the Huygens landing on Titan. In the last few years of
transatlantic bickering, Cassini - Huygens stands out as a superb of
what can be done when USA and the EU cooperate.
In the spirit of science and fraternity, here's a toast to the EU!

It is indeed fantastic success by NASA, ESA. I believe this mission was
far more difficult than those on mars. We have yet to recieve real
data. But it has landed on Titan and alive, this is the fact of this
moment.

Hearty Congratulations to all the people involved in this project.

Yes, well done to all the people concerned. Fingers crossed that the
pictures we get will be unlike anything we can imagine.

Not to belittle it but personally I think there was a lot of luck
involved too. Someone should go into a casino and offer a handful
of dollars to dame fortune at the roulette table. She has earned a
sacrifice, hasn't she? :-)

Lots of Greetings!

Bravo ESA! Hopefully we'll see more probes like this in the future.

Does anyone have links to NASA's Titan blimp designs which has been
kicked around? I remember seeing a talk on it this summer by one of the
project scientists, but can't find any info online.

Yes. We should have more international collaboration like that
and less like ISS :-). Congratulations to all involved.
