Mission Team

The Cassini-Huygens venture is a masterpiece of collaboration, uniting the space agencies, NASA, ESA, and ASI, and scientists and engineers on both sides of the Atlantic.

To the Orbiter, built in the USA, ASI (the Italian Space Agency) contributed telecommunications equipment.

A Europe-wide industrial team constructed the Huygens probe. 

European scientists lead two experiments on NASA's Orbiter, and participate in all of them. Conversely, US-led teams supplied two instrument packages on ESA's Huygens, Probe and American scientists contributed to three others.
