Descent of ESA’s Huygens’ probe at Titan

This movie, built with data collected during ESA Huygens’ mission at Titan on 14 January 2005, shows the operation of the DISR camera during its descent up to touch-down. The almost 4-hour long operation of DISR is shown in less than five minutes – 40 times the actual speed up to landing and 100 times the actual speed thereafter

Wow! For a full explanation of the visualization, ESA has prepared a PDF with all info.
