Is it still the case that the Earth-based tracking stations would be able to pinpoint Huygens location on the surface fairly accurately? Or did I hear incorrectly?

Seems some servers are swamped now, I hear only occasional sounds on NASA TV. But I heard a few seconds of clapping...

The Huygens data is being received! Applause has erupted in the German control room after the tense and anxious wait. It will take some time to begin examining the information. The first pictures from Huygens could be released later today, if all has gone well.

At the moment I've found this webcast to be of somewhat higher quality than the main NASA TV webcast:

I've found a really good webcast now:

http://science.ksc.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/rrg2.p...coder/nasatv.rm

Not a single skip the last ten minutes - though I suppose it'll start breaking up now that I've said it doesn't. smile.gif

Something occured to me...will the Huygens data remain just at ESA, or will it make its way to the NASA PDS. I hope it ends up in the PDS system, especially the DISR data....NASA is much better with access.

They believe they have got all the data from all experiments on Channel A (or B - there's some confusion?), however, the redundant Channel B (or A?) appear to be blank.

Second try with this post ... the first try seems to have vanished.

According to the current ESA news conference, we are receiving every packet of science and engineering data with no drop-outs. The first 30 minutes of the descent profile was nominal, with the main parachute deploying within 15 seconds of the predicted time. The spin rate of the probe is also nominal.
