I looked at Today’s APOD, in which the Huygens probe photos were used by an artist to create an “artist’s concept” of Huygens sitting on Titan.
Consider… the parachute is still attached.
What if the parachute had come down on top of the probe? More than a billion kilometers from home, with 90 minutes of battery power, the probe would have gotten pictures of the inside of the chute.
I’m not accusing anybody of poor planning, or anything like that. I’m just imagining that happening, and giggling quietly. There would have been no artist’s rendition, but cartoonists all over the blogosphere would have drawn funny pictures. (Well… at least one of us would have.)
