The Cassini orbiter will circle Saturn for four years and the tour also includes many fly-bys of the icy satellites.
It will in addition deploy the Huygens probe of the European Space Agency, ESA, which should reach Titan in 2004 and will investigate the moon's atmosphere with special instruments. Shortly before floating down to Titan with a parachute, it will photograph a Titan panorama.
