    Voyage to Saturn, Lord of the Rings


    In July 2004, after a 7-year journey, a huge robot
    spacecraft - named Cassini - entered orbit around the
    ringed planet, Saturn. Since then, Cassini has sent back
    numerous spectacular images of the planet, its rings and
    moons, and has made many unexpected discoveries.

    In January 2005, a saucer-shaped probe called Huygens,
    (carried by Cassini to Saturn), parachuted through the
    clouds of Saturn's largest moon, Titan.

    Visit the Planetarium for all the very latest news about the
    'Ringed Planet', which is now well placed in the night sky.
