At least a pleasant diversion from what’s happening on this planet:

PASADENA, Calif. (Reuters) – Europe’s Huygens space probe landed on Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, on Friday, sending back signals that it made a safe descent and its scientific experiments in the mysterious atmosphere had gone as planned.Parachutes designed to smooth its approach deployed on time and Huygens survived on Titan’s hostile surface for at least two hours after landing, surprising delighted scientists.

JPL details here. European Space Agency details here, including the first picture from the surface.
