NASA Selects Dragonfly Quadcopter to Land and Fly Around Saturn’s Moon Titan to Search for Signs of Life

This illustration shows NASA’s Dragonfly rotorcraft-lander approaching a site on Saturn’s exotic moon, Titan. Taking advantage of Titan’s dense atmosphere and low gravity, Dragonfly will explore dozens of locations across the icy world, sampling and measuring the compositions of Titan’s organic surface materials to characterize the habitability of Titan’s environment and investigate the progression of prebiotic chemistry.  Credits: NASA/JHU-APL Ken
