The lander made it’s successful descent way back in January 2005, and no craft has ever landed farther from the Sun.

It was a major milestone in the Cassini-Huygens mission, which concludes in September 2017 with Cassini plunging into Saturn’s atmosphere.

The video is compiled of the stunning images taken by the craft as it descended, showing a hazy atmosphere, then breaking through to a rugged ice terrain and ‘water ice rocks’.

Amazing video.
