Huygens Lands

It seems as though Huygens has landed successfully on the surface of Titan. There seem to be some issues with receiving data on one of the two data channels though. Although the 'A' channel doesn't seem to be transmitting, apparently the 'B' channel didn't lose a single packet of data. The data has yet to be processed so we should expect images later on tonight, possibly around 19:45 GMT, although as the press conference this afternoon started over 15 minutes late, it might be 20:00 GMT. The NASA TV footage has mostly worked although there are obviously bandwidth problems as so many people try to watch at the same time.
