It is an ambitious project. This will represent NASA’s first multi-rotor science vehicle on another celestial body and the first of any kind to transport its full scientific cargo between multiple areas. The drone will take nine years flying relatively regular missions to collect samples and study both Titan’s habitability and the development of its prebiotic chemistry in a key impact crater.
As a result, it may take a long time to learn more about Titan. Hopefully, however, Dragonfly should shed more light on the still-mysterious moon and the vitality of life beyond Earth.
