Until we continue our coverage in early January: happy holidays and thank you all for a great 2015!

On January 15th, 2005, after a 7 year and 3,2 billion kilometer piggyback ride through space, the ESA (European Space Agency) space probe Huygens detached from the Cassini orbiter and parachuted into the thick atmosphere of Saturn’s moon Titan. Two years later the Montreal based artist Jean-Pierre Aubé parsed the scientific data the probe sent […]
