Cassini spacecraft
Cassini's Superhuman Senses
Cassini can "see" in wavelengths the human eye can't, and it can "feel" things about magnetic fields and tiny dust particles that no human hand could detect.

The Huygens Probe
The probe was named after Christiaan Huygens, a Dutch astronomer who in 1655 discovered Titan, Saturn's largest moon.
