About this book

This book tells the story behind the brilliant success of the Cassini-Huygens space mission to Saturn's largest moon. Titan's atmosphere is similar to that of primitive earth around four billion years ago, and the new data this mission has provided could unlock the secrets to how life began on Earth.
The Huygens probe touched down on the surface of Titan in January 2005, the farthest a man-made spacecraft has successfully landed from Earth, generating more knowledge than any other space mission to date, and crowning a monumental achievement spanning 2 decades.
This book shows how scientists and science fought against great odds and obstacles, and triumphed spectacularly. Therefore, as well as being a fantastic scientific story, it is a study of superlative performance. Based on first-hand interviews with the key scientists, engineers and others involved in the mission, the authors capture the dynamics that enabled this group of highly diversified people to excel superlatively. As such, it contains lessons and inspiration for organisations of all kinds, in all sectors. This book contains remarkable colour photographs of Saturn and Titan, sourced directly from NASA and the European and Italian space agencies.
