NASA To Send Drone-Like Lander To Explore Saturn's Moon Titan

NASA has announced plans to deploy a drone-like lander to explore Saturn’s moon Titan. The vehicle, named Dragonfly, is set to launch in July 2028 with the mission aiming to explore multiple intriguing sites on Titan. The lander is set to arrive in 2034. The dual-quadcopter will be the first aircraft NASA operates for scientific exploration on another planetary body. It aims to investigate prebiotic chemical activities that might mirror those from Earth's early life-forming era. The eight-rotor rotorcraft is designed to operate like a drone, with construction and design being led by the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in Maryland.
