NASA plans to send drones on Saturn's largest moon 'titan'
Washington: NASA said that he is sending a dragon named “Dragonfly” on Saturn’s largest moon ‘Titan’. This nuclear powered mission is part of NASA’s competitive ‘New Frontiers’ program, which launched the ‘New Horizons’ space shuttle, which was the first to fly on the dwarf planet Yum. Laurie Glez, director of NASA’s Planetary Science Department, said: “The thing which excites me most about this campaign is that all elements needed for life are present on ‘Titan’.”
The drone is expected to launch in 2026 and reach ‘Titan’ in 2034. Prior to this, there is a plan to get some pitchers on ‘Titan’ and then to a pit. The cost of this mission has been fixed around $ 85 million.
In a statement issued by the American Space Agency a few months ago, Mimi Ang, project manager of Mars Helicopter at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, located in Pasadena, California, had said, ‘Next time we will fly, fly on Mars.’ Mars helicopter will be launched as a technology demonstrator from Space Launch Complex 41 of Cape Canyon Air Force Station, Florida in July 2020 with a United Launch Alliance Atlas V Rocket with the Mars Helicopter 2020 Rover. It is likely to reach Mars in February 2021.
Earlier, new discoveries of scientists had come to light about the presence of water on Mars. Scientists estimate that volcano activity may occur on the surface of Mars, because the presence of water on the red planet is not possible without the source of heat under the surface. In earlier research it was suggested that there is water under the snow-covered South Pole on Mars.
