The surface of Saturn's largest satellite--Titan--is largely obscured by an optically thick atmospheric haze, and so its nature has been the subject of considerable speculation and discussion. The Huygens probe entered Titan's atmosphere on 14 January 2005 and descended to the surface using a parachute system. Here we report measurements made just above and(More)

ing. This structure provides a volume per strut of D ́L sin(120°) and a calculated density of rcalc = WL/[D ́L sin(120°)], where WL is the strut weight per unit length and D ́ is the sum of the covalent diameter of the nanotube and the 0.34-nm van der Waals diameter of carbon (8). By equating calculated sheet densities to the observed sheet densities,(More)
