The probe was a part of the Cassini–Huygens mission. It was the first spacecraft ever to land on Titan, furthest landing from Earth a spacecraft has ever made and the only landing accomplished in the outer Solar System. The probe was named after Dutch astronomer Christiaan Huygens who discovered the moon in 1655.
