Dragonfly Mission to Titan
Advancing our search for the building blocks of life, NASA's Dragonfly rotorcraft-lander will make multiple flights to sample and examine sites around Saturn's exotic moon, Titan. The mission is scheduled to launch in July of 2028 and arrive at Titan by 2034.

Cassini Mission to Saturn
A joint endeavor of NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA), and the Italian Space Agency (ASI), Cassini was a sophisticated robotic spacecraft sent to study Saturn and its complex system of rings and moons in unprecedented detail.
Before NASA's Dragonfly rotorcraft lander soars through Titan's skies, researchers are making sure their designs and models for the nuclear-powered, car-sized drone will work in a truly unique environment.
Learn how NASA planetary scientists are probing ocean worlds in the outer solar system, searching for evidence of liquid water and possible signs of life beneath the icy surface. Put what you learn into practice by investigating a frozen sphere using various tools to learn about objects hidden inside. This activity can be adapted to include whatever materials you may already have on hand.
