Nasa TV will be starting coverage in about 3 mins - but I'm watching multiple TV channels to see if any carry coverage - and will post any news thru the day as it happens

I wonder if they will still be able to pick up the signal even after Cassini has passed out of range.

According to NASA's coverage schedule, we were supposed to have commentary from JPL at 6:30 EST, but that didn't happen.

Still waiting for 7:30am EST back from ESA.

According to the latest commentary, the signal is still being received, and there is evidence that the Doppler experiment is being conducted successfully.
Next update from ESA not before 17.15 CET.

It seems Huygens landed between 13:35 and 13:36 CET. A signal is still being received, meaning it survived the landing.

It's been confirmed that Huygens has survived its landing, and is still sending a signal detectable by the Earth radiotelescopes an hour after Doppler data indicated a landing at 4:35 AM Pacific time (19:35 UTC).

Are there any mirror sites for the ESA and CICLOPS sites? I've tried those "known official sources" and haven't been able to get in. I suspect that most everyone else in the world is trying to, too...

Huygens evidently made it, now if it returned data... whew.

As of 6:03 AM (about 90 minutes after landing), Huygens continues to transmit.

Huygens was still transmitting as its landing site dropped below Titan's horizon as seen by Cassini.
