Cassini-Huygens Mission

Summary:The Celestia Cassini installation model given a makeover.
Description:Version 1.1 is a minor update by rthorvald with the following new features:

* Fixed all filenames and paths, now set to lowercase
* Re-textured the parachute
* Added the updated Cassini trajectory (05.05.05), by jestr
* Re-wrote the SSC file to eliminate duplicate spacecraft names
* Re-converted all models from 3ds to cmod format

To install in Celestia just unzip to your 'extras' folder. This add-on is designed for Celestia 1.4.1 or later. It will not replace your current Celestia installation. It will modify your current installation in order to present an improved Cassini/Huygens representation.

Update 2017 (by Austin):
* True replacement of Celestia's default Celestia-Huygens in Celestia's "Solar System Browser".
* The latest (as of May 2017) trajectory data for Cassini and Huygens.
* Each of Cassini's missions around Saturn are depicted with its own timeline.
* Cassini's trajectory ends at the exact moment Cassini hits Saturn's cloud tops.
* Much improved and fairly accurate animation of Huygens' descent and landing on Titan.
* Cassini's trajectory optimized and accurate around many of Cassini's flybys.
