Landing on Titan: the movie

NASA released a composition of images and sounds from Huygens probe during its landing on Titan on January 14, 2005. The landing took more than four hours but it is shown in the movie in less than five minutes. The sounds are associated with rotational speed and the tilt of the parachute, the probe's heat shield hitting Titan's atmosphere, parachute deployments, heat shield release, jettison of the camera cover and touchdown. Have a good time.
