Dragonfly Drone To Fly Skies of Saturn’s Moon Titan

NASA?s Dragonfly Mission Will Soar the Skies of Titan in Search of Life?s Origins
NASA chose a drone-like design for Dragonfly. It will be able to fly to different locations and take samples of the organic-rich sands to analyze them. Since Titan’s atmosphere is four times denser than Earth’s, it is actually easier to fly on Titan than on Earth. Dragonfly will be the first such rotorcraft sent to explore another world.
