Nicely done, can't wait for the more realistic model (if is there any)

it's great but when it is entering the atmosphere it looks a bit false also when parachute is deployed

The xyz's are a bit jumpy at points. Plus, it looks like huygens leaves Cassini, and then comes back to it early in it's flight. Just some observations. My overall impression is GREAT! Thanks you so much for your work to this wonderful resource.

I enjoyed this, as I passionately watched the excitement on tv and this picture of Huygens is so much better! home page
