This artist's impression depicts a rotor-bladed craft hovering over the Huygens probe, lit by the Titan-copter's searchlight, on Titan's surface. This Titan-copter concept has been developed by Ralph Lorenz, a space scientist at the University of Arizona, United States.
The probe, an ESA project carried by the Cassini spacecraft, will land on Titan in 2004.
