The Cassini spacecraft, with the Huygens probe seen on the right in this photo, sits atop a Titan IVB/Centaur expendable launch vehicle at Launch Pad 40 at the Cape Canaveral Air Station. The spacecraft awaits placement of its payload fairing for protection during launch.

Cassini is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, Calif., manages the Cassini mission for NASA's Office of Space Science, Washington, D.C.
