The space agency may use a drone to help explore the terrain of Saturn's enigmatic moon.


Two days ago NASA's Cassini probe once again performed a flyby of Titan as part of its ongoing mission to learn as much as possible about Saturn and its moons.

I think this would also be an excellent idea for Mars. Is Mars' atmosphere thick enough to support winged flight?

I really hope this happens in my lifetime, so many interesting concepts have been discussed regarding the exploration of space recently. I feel like i'm going to miss them all, by the time they're implemented I may be long gone.

I wish I was born in the future, this fascinates me. I want to be one of the people to go and live on another planet. I think that would be awesome.

Definitely an ambitious project! If they pull that off it will be an amazing feat of engineering and planning. Good luck to them! :tu:
