NASA to send a drone to search for life on Saturn’s largest moon

NASA is sending a drone to explore Saturn’s largest moon, Titan. The space agency said Thursday the Dragonfly mission will fly over Titan, to study whether the icy moon can support microbial life. The mission will launch in 2026 and arrive at Titan in 2034. Titan has lakes of methane and an ocean below the surface, making it an attractive place to support primitive life.

A great place to launch Missions outside our solar system from. Alpha Centuri. that is the eventual goal. colonizing another planet. it has to be our goal. we MUST Expand!

Maybe NASA should go bigger and land on Triton instead. We already had probes on Saturn and a lander on Titan, let us expand our knowledge of the solar system and conduct further exploration missions in the Ice Giants like Uranus and Neptune.
