New findings from the Huygens and Mars Express missions will be announced today, at a press conference in ESA Paris, coinciding with a number of scientific papers online today in Nature and Science. Presentations and images will be available after 16:00 CET on www.esa.int/marstitanresults.
The presentations include a set of new wide-ranging results from the Huygens probe's two-and-a-half hour descent and landing, part of the extraordinary NASA/ESA/ASI Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn and its moons.
At the same time, ESA's Mars Express mission is continuing its investigations of Mars, painting a new picture of the 'Red Planet'. This includes the first-ever probing below the surface of Mars, new geological clues with implications for the climate, newly-discovered surface and atmospheric features and, above all, traces of the presence of water ice on this world.
