But what of Huygens , the European Space Agency probe, that Cassini released onto Titan in 2005? Wouldn't that be a contamination hazard? Perhaps, but landing on Titan was considered a much more acceptable risk.

"The harsh environment is expected to kill microorganisms that may have hitchhiked from Earth on board the clean space probe."
