NASA’s Dragonfly will land on dunes and shattered ice on Saturn’s moon Titan

NASA’s Dragonfly rotorcraft is scheduled to reach the Selk Crater region on Saturn’s moon Titan in the year 2034. Scientists have characterised the landscape of this region by analysing radar images of the area acquired by the Cassini spacecraft during its 13 years of exploring the Saturn system. In short, it is a patchwork of sand dunes and broken-up ice.

NASA says that Titan is an ideal destination to study astrobiology, prebiological chemistry and the potential habitability of an extraterrestrial world. This is because it is an ocean world dominated by water and ice with a carbon-rich chemistry. The moon has a subsurface ocean of liquid water, methane lakes and rivers on the surface. There are even methane clouds and rai, along with an atmosphere that will allow Dragonfly to fly.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is set to launch dragonfly rotorcraft in 2026 and is scheduled to reach the Selk crater region on Titan in 2034. Titan is the moon of which planet?


A – Saturn
