NASA Invests in Concept Development for Missions to Comet, Saturn Moon Titan

Quote

NASA has selected two finalist concepts for a robotic mission planned to launch in the mid-2020s: a comet sample return mission and a drone-like rotorcraft that would explore potential landing sites on Saturn’s largest moon, Titan.

The agency announced the concepts Wednesday, following an extensive and competitive peer review process. The concepts were chosen from 12 proposals submitted in April under a New Frontiers program announcement of opportunity.

Now that's a step in the right direction.

I have a quad-copter, and they are amazing.

Presumably, their particular drone would be a hex style for motor redundancy.

In any event great to hear.

I wrote a very long text here explaining that the picture text is wrong (Titan has a thick atmosphere, not thin) but everything except the first part disappeared, probably some issue with using quote marks in the quick post box. Anyway, I don't have the energy to rewrite everything again and there doesn't seem to be an option to delete posts so I have to leave it like this.
